If red is your color, then this large Viburnum shrub will not disappoint. The new leaves in spring emerge red and the red leaf color will return in autumn. The fruit on this cultivar is also red and persists much better than many other species and cultivars, assuming the birds don’t eat all of them. White flowers in mid to late May add Spring interest as well. Speaking of white, this Viburnum can certainly handle plenty of the white snowy stuff in winter with a USDA Cold Hardiness Zone Rating of 3a.
