Viburnum trilobum 'Andrews'

Selected by Frank Andrews, one of the field collectors for A.E. Morgan (see description for V. trilobum).  'Andrews' is an erect, upright grower with dark green foliage but smaller than the type, growing to only 6-7' (similar in size to V. trilobum 'Hahs').  The fruit is held erect by stout stems and ripens later and are larger than most other trilobums.  They also have the highest pectin content of any other cultivar, making it an excellent choice for jams and jellies.  Zone 3
