Viburnum cf. rhytidophyllum AF-15


Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
Cutting-grown from a rare wild seed collection of this infinitely ornamental species by Dr. Aaron Floden, consulting taxonomist to Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy.  Leatherleaf Viburnum is a superb evergreen species whose large leaves are nicely textured for multi-season interest.  Cymes of white flowers beckon bees and butterflies and are followed by fruit that is first red, then a shiny black.  This gets to 10' tall and as wide and works as a standalone plant or excellent as hedging.  As a seller of plants, we are contractually obliged to tout the value of this for hedging.
