Viburnum dilatatum 'Michael Dodge'

Named after Michael Dodge, who in 1969 crossed V. dilatatum 'Xanthocarpum' with V. dilatatum.  Selected by Winterthur Garden where he had worked at the time the cross was made.  Selection was made based on the abundant bright yellow fruit that glow against a backdrop of scarlet-red autumn foliage and the rounded 5-6' habit.  Use another V. dilatatum clone or the species for a pollinator.
