Viburnum plicatum 'Kilimanjaro Sunrise' is a stunning deciduous shrub that features a profusion of white flowers in the spring and striking foliage throughout the growing season. This cultivar is a compact and upright shrub that grows up to 6-8 feet tall and 5-6 feet wide, making it a great choice for small gardens or as a focal point in a mixed border. The flowers of 'Kilimanjaro Sunrise' are showy, with flat clusters of pure white blooms that cover the entire plant in late spring to early summer. The flowers are followed by red berries in the fall, which add an extra element of interest to the plant. The foliage of this viburnum is also noteworthy. The leaves emerge in spring with a reddish-bronze color, gradually turning to a glossy dark green as they mature. In the fall, the leaves turn shades of orange and red, providing a brilliant display of color.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
