Guelder Rose (Viburnum opulus)

Guelder Rose, Viburnum opulus, isn't a rose at all, but a viburnum like the Wayfaring Tree. It is, notwithstanding, a very beautiful shrub with all year round interest, which has been here since at least the Iron Age. It has large lobed leaves which turn well in the autumn, and globes of white flowers in early summer, followed by bright red berries, popular with birds, particularly Mistle thrushes. It does well in heavy soils. Guelder Rose bark is used by herbalists for a variety of ailments.


Provenance certificates are available on request for Viburnum opulus plants, which are from the Southwest of England.
Suppliers: Perrie Hale Forest Nursery

These Guelder Rose plants are all bare root, and are consequently available for delivery from November until March (please ask if you are interested in pot grown plants). During the lifting season there may be up to two weeks delay between placing the order and dispatching, due to weather conditions or pressure of orders, which are dealt with in date sequence. Orders placed for Viburnum opulus between March and September are confirmed in October ready for dispatch from November.
