Comments: This viburnum produces an upright leggy form as a mature plant and performs well in partial shade to full sunlight. The dark purple-black berries are special features in the fall when the plant is deciduous. Provide a fertile well drained soil. Viburnums are relatively easy to grow but may have fungal leaf spot when growing in stressful conditions.
