Mapleleaf Viburnum is named for its strikingly maple-shaped leaves. They are found commonly on hillsides and in forests, and in landscaping they are best used as borders/hedges, and as a grouped shrub. This plant has multi-seasonal interest with its lovely white flowers in spring that mature into blue-black berries in late summer, and striking red-purple fall color. This shrub provides both food and habitat to a wide range of wildlife including butterflies and many different birds (songbirds, wild turkeys and more). They are quick to establish and can form thickets if not pruned from time to time. Overall, mapleleaf viburnum is a low maintenance addition to the landscape, with its drought tolerance, few pest or disease issues, and ease of care. Partnered with its abundant wildlife food, Mapleleaf viburnums are winning plants for any garden.

Shipping Information

At Direct Native Plants, we take many precautions to make sure your plants will arrive in the best condition possible.

Our perennials are grown in a 4” quart-sized pot. These plants are then cut back to fit our packaging, placed in a protective clamshell container (made from recycled materials), and then shipped to you in a cardboard box. PLEASE NOTE: Perennials can be shipped in bundles up to 6. After that we start a new package, so keep this in mind if you’re trying to get the best shipping rates.

Trees and shrubs are grown in a 7” tall container (referred to as a 1-gallon pot), and depending on the species will be between 12” and 36”. We bag the root section of these plants to prevent them from drying out in transit and ship them in a tall cardboard box. PLEASE NOTE: Trees and shrubs can be shipped in bundles up to 4. After that we start a new package, so keep this in mind if you’re trying to get the best shipping rates.

Direct Native Plants now ships via FedEx. Orders ship out Monday through Wednesday of each week, and depending on how close you are to our nursery in Maryland, shipping will take anywhere from 1-4 business days.
