Need replacement for a Mohican Viburnum
I am from a suburb of Milwaukee Wisconsin. Zone 5. I had a Mohican Viburnum that developed root rot after a good 10 years of problem free growth.
I had it between 2 concrete patio slabs (aprox. 12 feet apart). Apparently the soil in that area does not drain very well based on the fact the that the Viburnum I had developed root rot and the soil does seem to be moist most of the time.
That area receives direct morning sun and consistent sun for probably 6 hours of the morning. I am told that another Viburnum can not be planted there because of the previous root rot problem.
I am looking for options to plant in its place. I would like it to be similar in size with full foliage to act as a natural privacy divider. Of course flowering and seasonal colors is always a plus. Any suggestions or general advice on my situation would be greatly appreciated.
