Plant Description

Mapleleaf Viburnum is wide-ranging in eastern North America from Quebec and New Brunswick down to Florida as an understory shrub in acidic woods. Its form is an open, sometimes stoloniferous shrub growing to about 6 feet. Pie-shaped clusters of creamy white flowers appear in spring and are followed by showy blue berries in early fall. The leaves are shaped just like those of red maple and their fall color is equally as beautiful turning pastel pink and rose and salmon, sometimes almost luminescent. The ability of Mapleleaf Viburnum to grow in dry or moist shade and to provide outstanding fall color makes this a truly valuable plant for the shady landscape. Use it in the woods or at the wood's edge where it will blend in unobtrusively until fall when you will suddenly notice its beautiful soft glow.
