Q.Viburnum How To Get Berries
I read that I need 2 viburnum bushes for them to cross pollinate, to get berries to grow. I have a spicebush that blooms some in the winter. Which types of viburnum can I plant with it to grow berries? The birds really need the winter food. Thanks!

To get berries you need to get a second viburnum of the same species, but a different cultivar. When you go to the nursery, tell them which cultivar you have so they can recommend one that is a different cultivar. Also make sure they bloom at the same time before buying.
Your Korean spicebush's botanical name is Viburnum carlesii but you need to know the cultivar name too.
