Viburnum ichangense

Ichang Viburnum

An upright-spreading shrub growing 6-10' high and 4-6' wide.  Although flower fragrance is described as not pleasant, the spectacular red fruit display more than make up for this shortcoming.  A bronze color may be evidenced on emerging leaves but not consistent.  Autumn coloration is reddish-purple.  Native to Hubei, China.  Zone 5
