Viburnum plicatum Mariesii, commonly known as the Wedding Cake Shrub, is a deciduous shrub that belongs to the Adoxaceae family. Native to China and Japan, this plant is a versatile addition to any garden, suitable for mixed borders, beds, or even as a large specimen shrub. It can also be used for informal hedging. The shrub grows to a height of 4 metres and a spread of 3 metres. It thrives in a variety of soil types, from acidic to alkaline and prefers full sun to dappled shade. The dark-green leaves, which turn red-purple in the autumn, beautifully contrast with the large white lace-cap spring flowers. It's an ideal choice for Japanese garden schemes and requires minimal maintenance - just an annual mulch of well-rotted manure or compost.
