Viburnum plicatum f. tomentosum

Viburnum plicatum f. tomentosum 'Mariesii'

Very common in the trade.  Introduced by Maries from Japan in 1879 for Messrs. Veitch.  Grows 8-10' tall and wide with strong horizontally tiered branches.  Outer sterile florets up to 1¾" across.  The inflorescence is held horizontally above the foliage.  Foliage has a more yellowish tint than other plicatum f. tomentosum.  Although it flowers profusely, it reportedly sets very little fruit, but this could be the result of a lack of a proper pollinator.  When fruiting does occur, it is red changing to black.  Fall color is reddish-purple.  Zone 5
