Viburnum plicatum f. tomentosum 'Pink Beauty'

A handsome 8-10' shrub with a narrower width giving it an upright appearance.  Leaves, flowers, and overall appearance are generally smaller than other f. tomentosum.  Flowers are pink upon opening and darken to a deeper pink as they age.  However, the intensity of the pink can vary from year to year and in some years, the flowers are more white than they are pink.  It is thought that the pink coloration is intensified during periods of cooler weather and would probably be more noticable if planted in partial shade.  Capable of producing a large crop of red fruit but is not reliable, possibly the result of a lack of a suitable pollinator.  Foliage is tinged with bronze.  Zone 5
