The Mapleleaf Viburnum, Viburnum Acerifolium is a Multi-season Plant Known For Its Statuesque Appearance
The maple leaf viburnum, formally known as the Viburnum acerifolium, is a common plant from the hillsides, forests, and ravines of eastern North America. As a prolific plant that serves as food for the wildlife, its cultivated cousins are multi-season ornamentals that display seasonal color changes over the year. As hardy additions to the landscape that also work perfectly in planned native gardens, the maple leaf viburnum is one of the few plants that offer statuesque beauty and constant seasonal interest. More than that, the maple leaf viburnum is easy to establish through seed or their abundance of rhizomatous suckers; in fact, mature plants form thickets of colonized young rhizomes.
The Mapleleaf Viburnum, Viburnum Acerifolium is an Attention-Cather With Its Vibrant Foliage
As mentioned in its name, the leaves of the maple leaf viburnum resemble maple tree leaves about two to five inches long. These leaves are three-lobed, full green, and adorned with tiny black spots on the undersides, and over time, the green hue of the leaves would transform into a vibrant reddish-purple in autumn rest of the plant laden with showy pea-sized bluish-black fruits. Cymes of tiny white flowers that grow up to three inches across sprout from the plant during the growing season, maple leaf fruits, foliage, and bark draw attention from songbirds, pheasants, deer, and deer even moose. Mapleleaf shrubs can reach up to as tall as six feet or one-point-eight meters, but they are generally smaller than those grown into the wild.
In growing maple leaf viburnums, first choose a suitable site for maple leaf plants used as understory greenery, such as a shady location. They are also well-suited to growing in containers or working as borders, foundations, and hedges; simultaneously, they tend to have a much more suited growth rate when grown near lakes, streams, and rivers. In the early stages of a maple leaf's growth, it is essential to provide supplemental irrigation until the roots establish themselves. If you want to keep your plant in focus without a scrub, start by thinning out the suckers annually. While pruning does not exactly enhance the form of the plant, the maple leaf is relatively tolerant to cutting, preferably in late winter to early spring, if you wish to keep it in a more compact form. When establishing an ample space, each specimen must remain three to four feet apart, as the effect en masse brings out the appeal. The maple leaf rarely encounters pests or diseases and does not need much supplemental fertilizer; however, you must apply a simple organic mulch annually to the root zone.
