A Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy Offering. We have gotten rather picky about collecting Viburnum as there are some that simply don't cut the mustard ornamentally but this one caused not even momentary hesitation. Glossy evergreen leaves with constellations of small gleaming blue fruit in the fall made an altogether dashing presentation.
Introduced in 1985 by J.C. Raulston from Chindo Island in South Korea, this is a vigorous and very ornamental form of this evergreen species. Hi-Gloss leaves on a fast growing plant with fragrant white flowers in late spring. Clusters of red turning black fruit. Good for screening as this can get some size and proven Port Townsend deer resistant.
Wild collection from Nova Scotia of this interesting species. Salmon colored new growth gives way to dense umbels of small white flowers which in turn becomes clusters of dark raisin-like fruit. A deciduous species with a long season of interest.
Good showy Viburnum that has heads of white flowers in spring followed by bright red clusters of fruit which are a good bird attractant. This is a deciduous species from Japan, China and Korea and develops reds and burgundy tones in the fall to the leaves. Can be used as hedging and is great in an informal garden. Tough - hardy to zone 5.
Intriguing new introduction of this collection from northern Vietnam at 1700 meters in 2011. Surprising number of plants have been proving hardy here from Vietnam and hopefully this will number among them. Small rounded lobed leaves clad vertical stems.We can hardly wait see these get some size and flower. Our thanks to Aaron Floden.
A collection by Philip Mac Dougall from Taiwan that we have yet to identify as we have not had the time to sit back with a glass of cerebellum enhancement fluid in the evening while we pore over the Flora of Taiwan. The glossy leaves are ample justification for growing this evergreen shrub. White flowers we presume.
This is a fine winter-blooming deciduous Viburnum named after Charles Lamont of Edinburgh Botanic Gardens who made the first cross.. Bodnant Gardens soon duplicated the cross and named some seedlings including the popular pink flowered 'Dawn' and this white flowered selection. It is light pink in bud and then ages white and the flowers are scented.
A seedling selection from Viburnum x globosum (davidii x calvum) which was the best of the lot by having a very slight pewter cast to the leaves. The seed came to us via Jim Fox from Roy Lancaster so good provenance on both counts. Expect an evergreen rounded dense shrub to 10' fairly covered in umbels of scented white flowers. This will be a good, tough plant.
