I really like this relatively unknown member of the North American native viburnum group. Allied with V. nudum, V. cassinoides suffers from lack of a memorable common name. Witherod? Please! Shawneehaw? Apologies to the namesake, but that sounds like a donkey braying. How about Rainbow Viburnum?

It is another tough customer; I'll ditto what Copperbaron notes, and add that V. cassinoides doesn't stop at 5-6'. My relatively young plants already are over my head and I expect that they'll top out at 8-10' and as wide. It has sweet-smelling flowers; the luscious fruit clusters that proceed through a dizzying array of color changes are outstanding; and this plant is no "wallflower" in the fall color department with reds, oranges, yellows, and burgundies rounding out the season.

Named clones are being produced; I hope to post on the three I'm growing when they have a little more size to them.

Neutral Copperbaron On Jan 27, 2002, Copperbaron from Vicksburg, MS (Zone 8a) wrote:

This plant is native to the eastern US. It has a dense, rounded crown with arching branches and a medium growth rate. At maturity, it is 5'-6' tall with an equal spread. New foliage is reddish, mature foliage is a dull green, and fall foliage is a showy red to purple color. The creamy, white showy flowers are born in 2"-5" flat topped clusters and appear in late June. The fruit is pink maturing to black.

This is an easy to grow shrub that will grow in full sun to partial shade, from dry to fairly wet soil, and is easily transplanted. This is a good landscape plant for it's extreme durability, and for use as a border, screen, naturalizing, mass plantings, attracting birds, and for difficult sites. It can be propogated by cuttings and seed.
