Viburnum plicatum was first introduced as the garden form found in Japan in 1844, before the original wild form, V. f. tomentosum, was discovered. It is a remarkable shrub, with widely spreading branches that naturally assume a series of horizontal tiers. 'Mariesii' emphasises this layered effect, dramatic at any time, but especially when the flowers appear, neat lacecap heads arranged in two parallel rows along the upperside of the spreading branches. Careful pruning, similar to that used for espalier apples, can produce a satisfying symmetrical shrub. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
