Mirror-Leaf Viburnum, Viburnum odoratissum 'Awabuki'
Viburnum Awabuki is a fast growing shrub with large, shiny leaves. Use awabuki instead of sweet viburnum for a more unique look. It is a good idea to use hand pruners as opposed to scissor shears or mechanical cutters on shrubs with large leaves.
This awabuki hedge may not have been trimmed for some time, blocking sunlight. Perhaps the homeowner likes it like that.
