Viburnum dilatatum 'Henneke' CARDINAL CANDY



CARDINAL CANDY typically matures to 4-5’ tall and as wide. Parents of this cultivar are two unidentified selections of Viburnum dilatatum. This is a dense, free-branching, bushy, upright-rounded, deciduous shrub that is distinguished by its multi-season ornamental interest and excellent winter hardiness. Small fragrant creamy white flowers in showy, large, rounded hemispherical clusters (6” wide) appear in late spring. Flowers give way to ovoid bright red fruits in showy pendulous clusters. Fruits mature in late summer to early fall but persist through winter until spring. Fruit is attractive to birds. Orbicular to broad-ovate, wrinkled, dark green leaves (to 5” long) are coarsely toothed and pubescent on both sides. Leaves turn russet red in fall
