Privacy screens/hedges are often composed of the traditional Cotoneaster, Boxwood, or Yew. While these plants make excellent choices if you’re into monochrome coloring. Viburnums, especially the Blue Muffin, however, make beautiful alternatives. Springtime brings an abundance of white flowers that are later followed by rich clusters of blue berries. Looking for that dual purpose shrub? Plant other viburnum varieties for greater displays of color while providing feathery friends both food and shelter. The Blue Muffin Viburnum will mature between 5-7’ in height and 4-6’ in width and can handle a variety of soil/light conditions.
