Question 10/10 in Care and Handling Of Specific Flowers FAQs



How do you care for Viburnum?


Remove any rubber bands or twist ties from the stems, remove most all the foliage then recut the woody stems, removing at least 1 inch of stem. Do not mash or smash the stem ends - doing so will inhibit the water uptake. Place them into clean containers filled with lukewarm water (100° F - 110° F) with flower food mixed according to package directions.

Viburnum have low ethylene sensitivity.

Check the water level daily, and add flower-food according to pack directions as needed. Recut the stems every two or three days to ensure effective water uptake.

VASE LIFE: Viburnum flowers can last from five to seven days.
