This is an exciting new plant from the excellent evaluation program of Michael Yanny at Johnson's Nursery in Milwaukee, WI. Summer Reflection™ has dark green leathery narrow foliage with more luster than its parents (V. mongolicum and V. x rhytidophylloides 'Alleghany'), and rich wine-red fall color. The fruit clusters will proceed through color transition from yellow to red to black in late summer, and add to the bird attractors in the landscape.

Summer Reflection™ stands to be another fine viburnum selection for the midwest, with increased hardiness and many outstanding landscape attributes.
