VIBURNUM

Large, diverse group of plants with generally oval, often handsome leaves and clusters of typically white, sometimes fragrant flowers. Blossoms are usually followed by single-seeded, often brilliantly colored fruit much appreciated by birds. Many viburnums are grown for their flower display, a few for their showy fruit. Many evergreen types are valuable as foliage plants. Several species can be grown as small trees.

Viburnum trilobum

Deciduous, native to Canada and the northern U.S. Grows to 15 ft. tall and 12 ft. wide. Leaves look much like those of V. opulus; they emerge reddish tinged, mature to dark green, turn yellow to red-purple in fall. Lace­cap flowers appear in midspring. Fruit is similar to that of V. opulus but is used for preserves and jellies. Less susceptible to aphid damage than V. opulus. ‘Wentworth’ has larger berries and bright red autumn foliage. ‘Compactum’ is a smaller form, reaching only 6 ft. tall and wide.
