I do like the 'Emerald Triumph' viburnum. It has a good branching structure that looks good when bare through the winter. It grows slowly, and I like that because garden space is a problem for me. After 8 years, this viburnum has kept it's nicely rounded shape without needing much pruning. The only problem: it has never produced any berries, not one. I would like to know what I can do to help this great bush produce berries. Can anyone advise me on this?

'Emerald Triumph' viburnum is another outstanding introduction from Dr. Harold Pellet's industrious innovations at the Hardy Plant Center and the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum.

A vigorous but compact shrub, 'Emerald Triumph' is V. x rhytidophylloides 'Alleghany' x V. burejaeticum, and has the guts to tolerate severe upper midwestern conditions and the backbone to survive the vagaries of the Ohio River valley region. This plant flowers heavily on young plants; carries dark green clean lustrous foliage through the summer; offers 3-4 weeks of red fruit before maturing to black; and has very nice fall color of primarily red but some yellow and orange interior foliage color as well.

If one needed an individual specimen of uniform rounded habit, or a tallish hedge (+/- 8 feet; 2.4 meters) of tough constitution for areas north of the Ohio River, you might just investigate the availability of 'Emerald Triumph' viburnum.
