Comments: This viburnum grows quite large and has several noteworthy features that include showy white flowers in the spring, glossy green foliage during the summer, striking autumn foliage color and clusters of purple-black fruit in the fall and winter. This is an excellent selection for naturalistic sites planted as an understory shrub to tall pines and other trees.
