Viburnum lantana

Viburnum lantana 'Candy'

This is a plant that we recently received from Don Shadow, Shadow Nursery, Winchester, TN.  Mr. Shadow had no information on the plant so we will evaluate it as it develops.  Since acquiring this plant we have noticed that it appears to have closer internodes, making it more compact than the speicies or any other lantana cultivar.  We assume that the cultivar name 'Candy' is a reference to its fruit.
