  • Forms a dense screening hedge quickly
  • Less pruning than the common form
  • Subtle red new growth foliage

Description: The Dense Fence™ plant is a Sweet Viburnum, as it is commonly known, and is highly suited for a privacy screen. Finer leaves, higher density, shorter inter-nodes and reddish new growth is what sets Dense Fence™ Viburnum apart from the common form.

DENSE FENCE™ Viburnum odoratissimumSize: 2.5 m high x 2 m wide.

Uses: Great as a screen, hedge, small feature tree or patio pot plant.

Position: It’s tolerant of most soil types and conditions, however, prefers a sunny to partly shaded position with well-drained soil. Tolerates moderate to heavy cold, however Dense Fence™ Viburnum has coped better with -6° Celsius compared to the common form in tests, probably due to its finer leaf. It will also tolerate light frost once established.

Care: Water as required for 8-13 weeks until established. Plant in a well mulched garden (chunky mulch is recommended). Use slow release fertiliser in spring. Prune as required.
