Viburnum Plicatum Mariesii. — 4 Comments

  1. Dear Alistair, I have just discovered your weblog on the new entries to Blotanical. And, how pleased I am to have found you since you feature here what, as you say, must be one of the most beautiful shrubs available today. I think that there is a place for most if not all Viburnums but ‘Mariesii’ is so elegant that it can easily be a specimen to be seen in its own right. I have always thought of it as a ‘wedding cake’ with the flowers held proudly above the leaves. Absolutely lovely.

    And, thank you so much for adding my own weblog to your list of ‘Favourites’. I am thrilled and look forward to our future correspondence. I knew on seeing that you are a fan of Dean Koontz that we should have much in common. Surely you are also a follower of Ian Rankin too?!!

    • Edith, how kind,
      I have no doubt I will be in touch with you again through your very interesting garden journal.
      I started reading Dean Koontz way back in 1978 when on holiday with our daughters. A very busy life as a shopkeeper brought my novel reading to zero. Now retired I have even more time for the garden, blogging and reading once again. I don’t know why I have never got round to Ian Rankin, he always did seem an obvious choice of author for me. Time to do it now.

  2. Good morning!

    I have been trying to find out why my 3 Vibernums- Plicatum Mariesii have not flowered this year. They were planted the autumn/winter before last and last year produced the most gorgeous blooms. They are growing well and producing lots of leaves but sadly no flowers this year. Should I have been feeding them do you think? It’s a mystery.

    Would much appreciate your thoughts.

    Thank you for your time.

    Kind regards

    • It is annoying when this happens Stefania. This is generally a free flowering shrub and if you have it placed in a sunny or partially shaded position all should be well. They tend to grow in acidic, neutral or alkaline soil. You certainly don’t want to overfeed, next Spring give your shrubs a feed of general garden fertilizer before buds start to develop. Perhaps its just one of those things and they will do well next year, if not seek further information.
