The Manchurian viburnum is pretty tough (tolerant of environment/extremes) and it has been easy to propagate. It blooms for an extended time here (April 20 - May 10). It is one of the parent plants (along with 'Allegheny') of V. x 'Emerald Triumph', an extremely hardy viburnum for the upper midwest.

This is a good "partner" plant for those with early blooming viburnums that want but never seem to get good/any fruit set, especially if you live in one of the frozen winter wastelands and can't grow much else.
