Positive ViburnumValley On Aug 5, 2007, ViburnumValley from Scott County, KY (Zone 5b) wrote:

'Cayuga' viburnum is one of many excellent hybrid viburnum introductions emerging from the lifetime of work accomplished by the late Dr. Donald Egolf of the US National Arboretum. A complex hybrid from Viburnum carlesii and V. x carlcephalum, this shrub is more compact and disease resistant while retaining excellent fragrance and heavy annual flowering.

'Cayuga' is a superior shrub to most run-of-the-mill fragrant viburnums (if one can diminish any of them) for more southerly zones, where summer heat and humidity really makes V. carlesii look awful and often shortens its lifespan.

If planted with one of its allies that has overlapping bloom time (V. x juddii, V. carlesii, V. x carlcephalum among others), 'Cayuga' can have significant attractive fruit set which turns red and holds this color for many weeks before maturing to black.

'Cayuga' deserves a home in many landscapes.
