Viburnum lantana

Viburnum_lantana_overall

Viburnum lantana is a nice, early-blooming selection that can adapt to dry, alkaline growing conditions. This insect/disease resistant species does best in well-drained soils. Although it keeps its leaves late into fall, the fall color is disappointing. The fruits, however, are somewhat attractive and serve as food for birds.
