HI, I bought 2 viburnum chindo at home depot. I should have searched before I bought it but it was so pretty and healthy and It will look great in the spot I chose. Once I got home and planted it I started doing research and everything says zone 7. now Im mad at home depot but I also don't know if i should dig them up and return them or wait to see if it lives here. Any one have this plant in z 6 what to do? also what is the viburnum that smells sooo good with little whitish pink balls on it?

Always do your research when you go to buy a plant. I always look on my phone and use the database here to find out if it's hardy or not before buying it. You do have a one year guarantee so I would keep the receipt and give the plants until next year and see if they come back. Mulch them good and they might surprise you.

But in saying all that our resident expert will be able to tell you more. Smiling @ViburnumValley does this one ring a bell for you?

I looked up the bloom haha you see where my priorities lie. I had just assumed home depot wouldn't sell bushes for a different zone. i learned my lesson. I decided to take them back and then go to the nursery to get a Korean spice viburnum. The leaves aren't as pretty but it smells so good. we haven't been below zero since the 90s so I figured it would survive for a few years until we get a cold snap. Then it would be to late to return them

It's actually the nurseries that Home Depot contracts with that decides what to bring in and they don't think smart usually. Rolling my eyes.
