This shrub almost has a tropical look to it. I planted three in a row to someday provide a bit of privacy. The berries are a bit heavy and will bend the branch down a bit, but just slightly.
Brandywine™ Viburnum nudum
- Part Sun to Sun
The optimum amount of sun or shade each plant needs to thrive: Full Sun (6+ hours), Part Sun (4-6 hours), Full Shade (up to 4 hours).
Experience the most beautiful berry display in the plant kingdom with this new Viburnum. It delivers loads of breathtaking berries that transform from green to shades of vivid pink and blue. A great companion pollinator for 'Winterthur' although Brandywine has good berry production even without another pollinator nearby. Showy glossy leaves change to incredible dark maroon-red in autumn.
