Viburnum cf. rhytidophyllum AF-15
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.
