I love the foliage. The blooms and berries are just an added bonus.

I was worried this wouldn't grow well in Colorado it's very difficult to find here. I have it planted on the north side of our house and it's doing quite well in its second year. We had a pounding from hail a few weeks ago that did a lot of damage to this and other, but it held up as well or better than other plants recommended for the area.

I like this shrub. The foliage is a shiny rich green and is tough. No drought affects its healthy appearance. From what I can tell, the leaves are bigger than Winterthur. Flowers are relatively ornamental but still a good feature. The fruit is a very interesting on this plant. The blue and pink colored fruit is pretty cool and unique and are in large clusters. Overall this is a great ornamental for any landscape, if foliage can be considered ornmental aside from the fruit and great fall color. As some other poster has mentioned it doesn't need another nudum clone to set fruit but can do it on its own. The fruit are however more plenfitful with a Winterthur nearby. My favorite viburnum!

Brandywine appears to be self-fruiting as this is the only V. nudum our nursery carries and this cultivar has flowered and fruited in our presence. The fruit clusters are huge and stunning. I can't find anything negative to say about this plant.
