Searching Genus for VIBURNUM

A great genus of 150 woody species originating in the temperate and sub-tropical zones of the northern hemisphere. It has been said that a garden without a Viburnum is akin to life without music and art.

VIBURNUM lantanoides (alnifolium)Spring3650
(Witch's) Hobble Bush3-4m  Zone: 3
This wonderful native suckering shrub is found in the woods of eastern Canada to southeastern United States. The beautiful large (up to 30cm across) opposite heart-shaped leaves with sunken veins seem oddly out of place on the slender stems, making them very pronounced. Showy white to pink flowers in large clusters appear in spring. Finally, drupes of berries, first red then black ripen in late summer and are quickly eaten by birds. The vivid and early color transformation in fall is astounding- one can find maroon to bright red leaves, color-splotching and everything in between. The colors are a visual feast when walking through the woodland. Virtually unavailable in the nursery trade; it tolerates deep shade and dryness and is an elegant and perfect woody partner to almost anything in the shade garden. Seed wild collected in Ontario.
Germination Instructions: Cold treatment required.

VIBURNUM prunifoliumSpring3658
Blackhaw Viburnum3-5m  Zone: 3
A native understory shrub in eastern and midwestern North America, which can be limbed up to treeform status. Creamy-white flat-topped flower clusters in spring followed by a mixture of green, yellow, and red-pink fruits turning to blue-black or blue-pink at maturity. Berries can be profusely borne from August through early December and attract birds. Foliage is similar to V. rufidulum (very glossy dark-green summer leaves that explode into vibrant yellow, scarlet or marron hues in fall). Very adaptive; full sun to full shade prefering moist, well-drained soils of average fertility in full sun, but is adaptable to poor soils, compacted soils, soils of various pH, permanently moist soils, dry soils, moderate heat, drought, and pollution.
Germination Instructions: Cold treatment required.

It transplants readily, thrives in dry soil and full sun, but will tolerate light shade. Seed wild collected in Ontario.
