The Q&A Archives: Viburnum Size

Question: What is the approximate width of a Round Leaf Viburnum? I am wanting to do a project and I only have a 5'5" wide area. Is this enough?

Answer: Viburnum burkwoodii grows 6'-12' tall and about 5' wide. You can keep the plant smaller if you prune annually. Another choice might be Viburnum opulus 'Compactum', the European Cranberry Bush. This plant grows only 4'-5' high and wide when mature. Neither of these plants have round leaves, but the size is right!
