Guelder Rose is in fact not a Rose at all but a Viburnum. It is popularly used in native mixes to add seasonal interest and is very wildlife friendly. The glossy red berries are slightly poisonous and, although Viburnum opulus is considered self-fertile, it is advisable to have more than one plant to ensure pollination and subsequently, berries!
Used for informal hedging, this shrub provides seasonal interest and a great shelter for wildlife. Guelder Rose is a wonderful bushy hedging shrub.
Mix it up by planting your guelder rose hedge with other native hedging plants to create a colourful, wildlife friendly combination.
Viburnum opulus has an average growth rate and will achieve between 20-40cm pa. Guelder Rose is ideal for desired heights of up to 5m
In order to promote optimum berry production Viburnum opulus needs to be pruned after flowering. Please view the Best4Hedging Care and Planting instructions in our Advice section.
