Viburnum opulus

Viburnum opulus 'Leonards Dwarf'

A compact, rounded form to 5-6' similar in appearance to V. trilobum 'Alfredo' and V. trilobum 'Bailey Compact' but with some of its own distinctive characteristics.  The branches are finer textured and it is multiple branched at ground level making it broader at the base giving it a more globose, rounded habit rather than the more upright oval habit of the aforementioned.  This compact plant produces a full-sized crop of white flowers that are typical of the species with abundant reddish-orange fruit.  Foliage is a clear green.  Fall color is burgundy.  Does well in shady settings and heavier soils.  Zone 3
