Question From: Charlotte, North Carolina, United States
Q: Linden Viburnum - I have this plant about 3 years. The leaves seem perfectly healthy but its only grown about 18 inches. has no flowers in spring, summer or fall. It gets filtered sun with 6 hours of direct sun daily. I admit I haven't given it any time of fertilizer. What could be its problem. It is in the middle of the yard because I thought it would grow tall and fill out.
This has me stumped, since Linden Viburnums are considered weedy and can be invasive. Generally viburnums do not need regular fertilizing to thrive. Excessive heat, lack of water and/or use of herbicides on nearby lawns may be part of the problem.
