Viburnum sieboldii 'Ironclad'

Tall and upright in habit (15'x12') with large 5" long leaves with prominent veins.  Attractive red to black fruits appear in the fall as the foliage turns a dark burgundy.  The name is the result of it being the only survivor from a seedling planting.  A Roy Klehm, Beaver Creek introduction.
