Viburnum x juddii

Judd Viburnum

A selection from a cross between V. carlesii and V. bitchiuense made by William Judd, propagator at rhe Arnold Arboretum in 1920 and named in 1935.  Leaves are a dull, bluish-green and in our opinion, the stems are finer in texture and the overall habit is more refined than V. carlesii.  Pink buds open to highly fragrant 2½-3½" semi-snowball flowers in mid April.  Fall foliage is burgundy.  Fruits are jet black and sparse but persist throughout the winter. 

USDA Hardiness Zone:
