Viburnum nudum

Viburnum nudum 'Moonshine'

My only encounter with this cultivar was at the Charles R Keith Arboretum, Chapel Hill, North Carolina while being escorted by our friend Michael Dirr.  I did not take detatiled notes of the plants' characteristics but it was approximately 8' tall and had a most spectacular fruit display.  The fruit was in such great abundance that Mike, who had also never witnessed 'Moonshine' before was equally impressed.  Another candidate as a pollinator for V. nudum and its cultivars.  Zone 5
