Judd's viburnum is prized for its fragrant spring flowers and is reminiscent of Koreanspice viburnum. Leathery, dark green, elliptical leaves cover the plant throughout the growing season and turn a beautiful wine color in fall. With spring comes the onset of highly fragrant, rounded snowball-like flowers (pink buds that mature to white flowers) that attract butterflies and other pollinators. These eventually turn into red berries that mature to black by autumn. Plants have little to no disease or insect problems and are found in moist, well-drained soils (though tolerable of drought and other growing conditions) in full sun or part shade. Judd's viburnum is considered to be more dense and broad, with a more prolific bloom period than Koreanspice viburnum.
