Viburnum Wrightii
Wright's Viburnum
Family: Caprifoliaceae

This plant is native to Japan and its hardiness zones are from 1 to 5. It's a medium sized deciduous shrub and can grow between 6 and 10 feet tall and has a slow growth rate. The summer foliage is dark green in color and usually lustrous. The leaves are simple and 3 to 5 inches long. The autumn foliage is red in color yet the color is often inconsistent. Its small white flowers are in flattened, numerous clusters and bloom in May. It also contains bright red, rounded fruit that are also in flattened clusters and bloom in September and persist into winter. Wright's Viburnum likes full sun to light shade and is easily transplanted. It's best used as a border, screen, or specimen plant, and is good for mass plantings and groupings. This can be found along ring road and down by Cedar Dell.
