Viburnum x burkwoodii

Caprifoliaceae
Deciduous, Evergreen, Shrubs

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.

Viburnum x burkwoodii

To 6–12 ft. tall, 4–8 ft. wide. Glossy dark green leaves reach 3 in. long, have white, hairy undersides; turn purplish red in cold weather. Dense, 4-in. clusters of pink buds open to very fragrant, white flowers in late winter or early spring. Blue-black fruit is not showy. Early growth is straggly, but mature plants are dense. Can be espaliered.
