Chicago Lustre Viburnum - July 2023
We have a pair of Chicago Lustre Arrowwood Viburnum shrubs that I planted in the Fall of 2021. These were part of the layout of of our original plan - in fact the plan called for even more of these, but I've opted to replace some of them with the Doublefile Viburnum that I found in treeform.
But, back to these. They were feasted-on by the dang rabbits that first year. And, they lost ALL of their size. Last year, I used Chicken Wire rings to protect them. And, these are the ONLY ones that I've left in the rings.
Without the rabbit pressure, these shrubs have put on some new growth and are looking good. See below for a photo of their current state in early July 2023:
