Viburnum plicatum f. plicatum

Viburnum plicatum f. plicatum 'Newport'

A dwarf and very comopact rounded plant maturing at 4-5' tall and wide.  Discovered as a chance seedling, it grows only one-half the size of its parent, including flower and leaf size.  A tidy, neat habit that rarely needs pruning.  The showy flowers are born in profusion in upright snowball-like clusters.  The deep green, heavily quilted foliage is very attractive in its own right.  Fall color is a superior rich burgundy.  A Lake County Nursery introduction.  Zone 4

USDA Hardiness Zone:
