Plant Description

Winterthur' is an improved selection from Winterthur Gardens in Delaware, of Smooth Witherod or Possum Haw, that grows naturally in moist places throughout the southeast. Growing 5 to 7 feet high and wide with dense, compact branching, 'Winterthur' has 3 to 4 inch long, waxy, lustrous deep green leaves that turn a gorgeous reddish purple in fall before falling off. The creamy white pie-shaped flower clusters appear in early summer and are followed by white berries that change to deep purple black in fall. For best berry production, plant a Viburnum nudum var. cassinoides with it. Grow it in full sun to light shade and average to moist soil. Would make an excellent screen or backdrop.
