STEADY EDDY® Doublefile Viburnum

Zone: 5, 6, 7, 8 Exposure: Full Sun, Part Sun Height: 4-5' Width/Spread: 4-5'

Not your run-of-the-mill doublefile viburnum! In our trials, it has beaten out ‘Summer Snowflake’ with improved, stronger blooming. You can see for yourself with its long bloom time in spring and repeat blooming in the summer. Its elegant, lacy blooms are held on a strongly horizontal habit, which brings a unique architectural feature to the landscape. Foliage is dark green, glossy, and has the hallmark deep veining of the species, which altogether looks lovely in the landscape and performs well as a filler for cut flower arrangements. Fall color is a brilliant purplish-burgundy.

Top three reasons to grow Steady Eddy™ viburnum:

  • Reliable repeat blooms!
  • Space-saving habit, grows about half the size of conventional varieties.
  • Low maintenance – plant and enjoy.


Light: Full to part sun

Soil: Any average, well-drained soil will do

Water: Average water needs; drought tolerant once established, though extreme dryness will impair bloom and rebloom.

Fertilizing: For best Long blooming, fertilize monthly from early spring through late July

Pruning: Not needed, though the oldest branches can be removed every 3-5 years to keep growth vigorous and productive. Blooms on old wood, so prune after spring bloom to avoid damaging spring flowers.
