Koreanspice viburnum is among the very finest of landscape plants. The highly fragrant flowers appear in late April to early May, reddish-pink in bud opening to white. The dark green summer foliage turns a vivid orange-red in fall. It is smaller in stature than most viburnums, making it especially useful around patios, walkways, entrances and other areas where its fragrance can be readily appreciated. Various individuals of this species are often sold as the Judd Viburnum (Viburnum x juddii). Nurseries will often sell plants listed as both V. carlesii and V. x juddii, which are simply different clones of this species.
