The name explains the stars of this garden, which includes some many varieties of Viburnum chosen for outstanding foliage, flowers and berries.
Highly visible from the entrance area, the garden is a long bloomer, from mid spring to late summer.
It’s also a learning garden with its plants chosen to demonstrate how Viburnum can be used for landscaping or emphasis points in a home garden.
This garden also appeals to the sense of smell with certain very fragrant species, such as the Korean Spicebush. In fact, one of the very favorites among the fragrant plants is the Viburnum Sarcoxie, developed down the road at Sarcoxie Nurseries.
