Increases the bloom and berry count of Brandywine™, Cardinal Candy™, V. carlesii, Blue Muffin™, and more.

A superb shrub in its own right, with fragrant blooms, berries, and fall foliage changes.
'Winterthur' has been an enduring favorite since its 1961 introduction, both as an ornamental Viburnum in its own right and as a reliable pollinator. Enjoy its blooms, berries, and fall color to the fullest, but don't be surprised if neighboring Viburnums throughout your garden begin to flower and fruit more heavily as well!

Eight feet tall and 4 feet wide, this multi-branched shrub has a neatly rounded habit that makes it ideal in a line along the driveway, in the back of the border, or as part of a barrier planting. Spring brings clusters of fragrant white blooms, and by late summer giant clusters of blue-black berries have replaced the flowers with bird-attracting beauty. In autumn, the glossy 4-inch foliage turns first to maroon, then to deep reddish-purple before dropping. A lovely multi-season shrub for any sunny setting!

And while 'Winterthur' is showing off, it is also pollinating Cardinal Candy™, Blue Muffin™, and every other Viburnum in its vicinity. Most Viburnums will set flowers and fruit even if grown solo, but they are far more productive if grown near a pollinator. 'Winterthur' is the perfect candidate to beautify the entire Viburnum garden. Zones 5-9. Cannot ship to AZ.

Your WEB site is very user friendly; been happy with plants I ordered from you before.

Which plants should I grow to repel insects?

Many of the herbs will repel insects. Pennyroyal repels fleas and other insects. Pyrethrum repels moths, flies, ants, mosquitoes, cockroaches, mites, and bedbugs. Mint repels flies, fleas, and ants. Lavender repels flies, silverfish, and fleas. Catnip can repel mosquitoes. Thyme repels insects. Lemon Grass repels mosquitoes. Basil repels flies and mosquitoes. Sage repels a variety of insects. Chrysanthemum, grown for its beautiful flowers and for the extraction of pyrethrin (an organic insecticide), repels flies, beetles, mosquitoes, roaches, lice, and fleas.

Which plants should I grow to repel rabbits and deer?

Planting garlic, onions, chives, lavender, rosemary, and sage around rabbit-susceptible plants will repel rabbits. Deer repellent plants include: lavender, onion, catnip, sage, chives, garlic, spearmint, and thyme. Be sure to strategically place these repellent plants around and in between rabbit and deer-susceptible plants. Also, place some along the property line and especially at key points the rabbits and deer are using as entryways, which can even deter them from coming onto your property.
