Viburnum sargentii

Plant details

This bold Chinese deciduous shrub can eventually make a large plant, although regular hard pruning in spring will keep its size to 90cm-1.2m (3-4ft), as a foliage plant with extra large leaves and no flowers or fruits. A compromise is preferable, allowing the handsome bushes to bear their strong prominent lacecap heads of creamy-white flowers, followed by light red berries in autumn. The maple-shaped leaves are dark brown in spring, and a rich reddish purple in autumn. Plants are particularly happy on chalky soils. To propagate, take cuttings in summer.
