Viburnum trilobum

Right now I only have one of these shrubs, it is only a couple of years old, no flowers or berries again this year. Do I need two plants of the same species to get berries?

Does yours produce berries?

Hi Sharon,
I only have the one shrub and it is quite young also, but has had flowers and berries for a couple of years. It's starting to turn a reddish color now also.
I can find the shipping label, but it has no date so I'm not sure how old it is. It might be over 5 years old. Maybe yours is just too young yet.

Just let it get older. I have some young ones in the back that aren't producing berries, but their mama in the front yard, about 10 years old, produces very well, especially the last 2-3 years.

Thanks gals, I'll wait some more then.

Mine too is just starting to turn its fall colours. Beautiful shrub isn't it.

I've always wondered why mine wasn't getting berries! It's about 5 or 6 years old now, and gets a few flowers but nothing noticeable for berries. Good to know that it's just its age, or lack thereof. :)

They sure are pretty aren't they Sharon! Is yours a named variety? I just planted a couple of 'Bailey's Compact' which are still fairly green. Hopefully I'll see some colour yet this fall. I have them planted with a golden elder, should be a nice combination.

Sharon, when i saw your picture, i thought "That isn't what mine looks like!" Mine has different leaves altogether. I'm pretty sure i bought it at a nursery and it was labeled Viburnum trilobum. I'll have to take a picture of mine and see what it really is.

They sure are GC! Mine is just the plain species, but I'm thinking of buying a shorter cultivars next spring to go into the shrub bed I made this spring. Oh for sure I bet it looks great planted by a golden elder!

Marcia, hmmmm, lets see a photo ;)
