The Q&A Archives: Viburnum won't flower

Question: I have what I believe is a Chindo Viburnum and it doesn't flower or berry. Does it need to be cross pollinated with another viburnum? If so, what kind will do and how close does such a plant need to be?

Thank you very much.

Answer: Alexandra,

It should flower whether there is another plant around or not. The viburnum needs some good light exposure to enable the foliage to produce carbohydrates that lead to good bloom set. It is also possible that the plant just needs more time to settle in and perhaps a little boost of fertilizer to promote some fresh new growth and vigor.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
