Viburnum fordiae is one of the best viburnums to grow, owing to its magnificent autumnal display of bright red berries. It's a bushy deciduous shrub with strongly veined green leaves. In spring it bears clusters of white-pink flowers. It's perfect for growing as a specimen shrub in a mixed border and also works well in Japanese garden schemes.

Grow Viburnum fordiae in moist but well-drained soil in full sun to partial shade. Mulch annually with well-rotted manure or compost, and remove vertical shoots to retain the shape of the shrub, after flowering.
