Chiquita™ Sargent Viburnum is unique among the several Sargent Viburnum selections that I'm growing here at the Valley. A compact grower (versus the large rangy habit of other selections), Chiquita™ sets copious blooms in late spring and by July is loaded with bright cherry red fruit.

The effect is stellar, with closer arrangement of the flowers and fruit due to the shorter stem growth. The fruit is quite persistent as well, with the plant holding forth colorfully from early July on through fall. The dried fruits will hold on through winter, too, especially if there isn't much bird pressure. There are clusters still hanging on my plant as I post this (in April 2011) as the new foliage emerges.

For smaller landscapes that would appreciate a modest sized plant with a fruit-forward display, Chiquita™ ought to be on the short list.
