Viburnum awabuki, commonly known as Awabuki viburnum, is an evergreen shrub prized for its glossy foliage and fragrant white flowers. Here's a detailed description:

Appearance: It typically grows as a dense, rounded shrub, reaching heights of 10 to 15 feet (3 to 4.5 meters) and spreads of 5 to 10 feet (1.5 to 3 meters). The dark green, leathery leaves are ovate to elliptic in shape, arranged opposite each other along the stems, and grow up to 6 inches (15 cm) long. The foliage is glossy, giving the plant an attractive appearance year-round.

Flowers: In spring, Viburnum awabuki produces small, fragrant white flowers in clusters at the ends of the branches. These blooms add ornamental value and attract pollinators such as bees and butterflies to the garden.

Fruit: Following the flowers, the shrub may develop small, dark blue-black berries. These berries are not particularly showy but can attract birds to the garden.

Growth Habit: Viburnum awabuki is relatively low-maintenance and has a moderate growth rate. It prefers full sun to partial shade and well-drained soil. Once established, it is fairly drought-tolerant.

Landscaping Uses: This shrub is often used in landscaping as a specimen plant, in mixed borders, or as a hedge or screen due to its dense growth habit and attractive foliage. It can also be pruned to maintain a desired shape or size.

Climate Tolerance: Viburnum awabuki is native to East Asia and is well-suited to USDA hardiness zones 7 to 9. It can tolerate a range of soil types and is relatively resistant to pests and diseases.

Maintenance: While generally low-maintenance, occasional pruning may be necessary to remove dead or damaged branches and to shape the plant. Regular watering, especially during periods of drought, will help promote healthy growth and flowering. Hardy in zones 7-9.

The seeds have a period of dormancy. They can be planted outdoors in the fall or winter for spring germination or they can be cold stratified to simulate winter conditions and to break their dormancy at any time of the year. 1. Place the seeds in a plastic bag and seal it. Store the bag in a refrigerator for 3 months. 2. The seeds like moist, well-drained soil. Fill a pot with a mixture of half potting soil and half sand or vermiculite. 3. Sow the seeds on the soil and cover them with a thin layer of soil. 4. Water the container. 5. Put the pot in a warm, sunny area. 6. Water the pot regularly so that the soil is moist but not wet. 7. The seedlings can be transplanted when they are a few inches tall.
