Plant Care Instructions and Attributes
- ‘Mary Milton’ is one of the rare viburnums that offer a beautiful blooming.
- It is best to plant your Viburnum plicatum or Japanese snowball in fall to favor root development before winter and renewed growth in spring.
- The Mary Milton viburnum likes well drained soil.
- If growing it in pots, choose a good quality soil mix and ensure that water drains well. It isn’t necessary to prune the plant, but it can be useful if you wish to reshape older specimens.
Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.
We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.
