Do I keep, chop or transplant this snowball viburnum? I don’t know if this shrub belongs in my edible garden.
It’s in an area that I want to cover with vegetable beds, being the sunniest spot all day and year-round. It’s deciduous and flowers fairly briefly at this time of the year. I have no idea if it’s beneficial in any way. I haven’t inspected it for bugs. And I don’t know if it has any uses.
But I love it’s cooling green flowers that mature to white. Is it a cutting flower?
It looks lush in this dry landscape. And it requires no attention. I’ve not watered it once in 18 months. It made me happy standing guard next to the garlic last night at dusk. I noticed it has a thick, sweet scent.
I shudder at the thought of digging out another stump but I imagine the former owner of this house would have cherished this shrub and I’d like to keep it somehow. Are they easily transplanted? Maybe some kind soul will let me know.
