Positive ViburnumValley On Feb 10, 2007, ViburnumValley from Scott County, KY (Zone 5b) wrote:

'Challenger' is a new selection of the relatively unknown member of the North American native viburnum group. It is another tough customer.

Introduced by Beaver Creek Nursery in northern IL from parent plants at the Morton Arboretum, this plant will take what you can throw at it weatherwise. My young plants started in 5G containers, and have gained 18" growth the first year.

'Challenger' viburnum was selected for hardiness, good clean green foliage, density of habit, and reliable fall color. My young plants will flower and fruit this year, and I expect to have a full performance evaluation come this fall.

Regional...

This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:

Poplar Grove, Illinois
Clermont, Kentucky
Georgetown, Kentucky
Lexington, Kentucky
Appleton, Wisconsin
