Viburnum rhytidophylloides - Lantanaphyllum Viburnum


Viburnum x rhytidophylloides is a hybrid viburnum (a cross between V. rhytidophyllum and V. lantana). It is a semi-evergreen, multi-stemmed, upright-arching shrub that typically matures to 10-12’ tall and as wide. ‘Wildwood’ is a cultivar that features lustrous green foliage. Plants become somewhat rounded with age. Flat cymes (to 4” across) of creamy white flowers bloom in spring. A second lighter bloom may occur in fall. Spring flowers give way to berries in early fall. Berries first appear green, then bright red and finally change to glossy black by September. Fruit set may be poor in some years. Leathery, thick, wrinkled, ovate-oblong, dark green leaves (to 6” long) are light green beneath.
