Most of us love mild temperatures, and this Viburnum is no different. Tubeflower Viburnum is hardy to USDA Cold Hardiness Zone 7a, so don’t try planting this in the northern Midwest or Northeastern parts of the United States. The glossy foliage is so waxy that one can actually scratch off the wax with a nail or sharp object. In addition to its glossiness, the foliage is evergreen. Enjoy the purple-tinted white flowers that provide stimulation through both sight and scent.
