Viburnum lantanoides – Hobblebush – 1-Quart


A common shrub at higher elevations of the Catskills but completely uncommon in the nursery trade because of slow seed germination and slow growth. Much like many species of hydrangea, the flower clusters are composed of an outer ring of showy, sterile flowers and an inner dome of fertile ones. The berries that follow first turn orange then blue-black just about the time the leaves become splashed with a psychedelic combination of gold and burgundy atop a lime green base. This woodland shrub demands a cool, moist, shady location.
