Native to Northeastern Asia, this is a medium size (12'-15' high with equal spread), deciduous, multistemmed shrub with a slow to moderate growth rate. The showy, 3"-4" flat topped, white flower clusters have both sterile and non-sterile flowers. The red fruit matures in September and persists throughout the winter.

This viburnum can be grown in full to partial shade with best growth in fertile, moist soils, although it is soil and pH adaptable. Another very pretty, very tough, and very easy to grow viburnum that can be used in the shrub border, mass plantings, small groupings, difficult growing sites, as a screen, and is useful for flowering and fruiting.
