Viburnum opulus

Plant details

The guelder rose, Viburnum opulus, is a hardy, vigorous native shrub suited to growing in woodland gardens or a shrub border. It offers interest for most of the year, bearing large, lacecap-like, white flowers from late spring to early summer, followed by bunches of small, bright red, fleshy fruit in autumn. Its deciduous, three-lobed, dark green leaves turn a striking shade of red before falling.

For best results grow Viburnum opulus in moist but well-drained soil in full sun to full shade. Once eastablished it will need little or no pruning.
