SKU: vib_ace_000 Categories:
Viburnum acerifolium or Mapleleaf Viburnum has multiple, upright, sparsely branched stems with comparatively large leaves that resemble those of a maple tree. Terminal clusters of small white flowers in early summer are followed by tiny blue-black fruits in fall that birds gobble up as soon as they ripen. The leaves turn brilliant shades of red in autumn. Compact size and low water requirements make this a great understory shrub for shady areas. Slowly forms a colony through root suckering.
