It may not have won an Olympic Gold Medal, but it did earn the horticultural equivalent. This 2012 Pennsylvania Horticultural Society Gold Medal Plant boasts evergreen foliage that looks decent in Winter (unlike other Lantanaphyllum Viburnums which tend to have limp leaves in Winter). Enjoy the large, white flowers and the ornamental red drupes as well. ‘Dart’s Duke’ has the potential to re-bloom in Autumn and is deer resistant as well.
