The unique trait of this species which makes it nearly impossible to identify as a Viburnum but at the same time leaving you with a lasting impression is the small, Mickey Mouse shaped leaves. Leaves are evergreen, dark green, and nearly rounded with a red petiole. The white, non-fragrant flowers are quite small as is the cyme. Fruits are equally small and bluish-black. Listed as growing 8', but old arboretum specimens have been documented as much larger. Named as a compliment to Sir Harry Veitch. Zone 7
Upon first sighting, it would be nearly impossible to find someone who could properly identify this species as a Viburnum. However, once encountered, its identity will never be forgotten.
