Viburnum farreri

Viburnum farreri 'Nanum'

A delightful small shrub growing only 3-4' tall and wide.  Pinkish buds open to wonderfully fragrant pink flowers that fade to pinkish-white.  This is another clone that blooms on naked stems.  Small, semi-glossy leaves are bronzy green upon emerging and remain that way throughout the summer, then turning reddish-purple in the autumn.  Fruit is red changing to black but not showy due to being sparse.  Flowers are suseptable to unpredictable late spring frosts, but still a worthy garden plant due to its compact size and summer foliage.  Zone 5
