NANNYBERRY Viburnum lentago
It is hard to understand why this versatile shrub isnít seen everywhere. Showy flowers, decorative fruit and excellent fall colour put this shrub in a league of its own. The course lustrous leaves are seldom bothered by any pests. It thrives in sun or shade.
Shrub: Height 3 to 5m (9 to 15ft). Although this shrub can get large over time most plants never get taller than 10 feet.
Foliage: Course texture leaves are shiny and bright..
Flowers: Large clusters of white flowers are very showy. Blossoming period is extended from late spring to early summer.
Fruit: Showy clusters of berries turn from green to pink to red to black and persist into the winter. Excellent for birds.
Fall Colour: Outstanding. Orange to blood red.
Comments: Remember, Nannyberry grows quite large.
