American Spice is one of the best kept secrets among fragrant viburnums! A sport of V. x ‘Sarcoxie’ which is a cross between V. carlesii and V. burkwoodii. American Spice is a tight, compact growing plant with the glossy foliage of its burkwoodii parentage but the shorter, more refined growth habit of the carlesii. The internodes are relatively short creating dense, slow-medium growth. In bud they are coral pink opening to pure white and extremely fragrant; probably the most spicy scented flowers of all the fragrant vibes. And flowers aren’t its only attribute; the glossy dark green foliage turns a magnificent maroon red in the fall. We have had it growing near the entrance of our Michigan nursery for years and it hasn’t died back at all.
