Viburnum dilatatum f. xanthocarpum

This is a yellow fruited form that will not come true from seed.  Habit is a 6x8' rounded form with foliage a lighter green than the type.  Fruit is reported to be yellow to amber yellow but sightings report more of a yellow-orange.  Fruit is not produced in the abundance of the fed fruited types but is more persistent than any other yellow fruited viburnum. 

USDA Hardiness Zone:



This yellow fruited taxon would would be a good pollinator for the red fruiting dilatatum cultivars if V. dilatatum 'Michael Dodge' was not available.
