Viburnum lantana ‘Aureum’

For sale by Bluebell Nursery

This grower is sure of this plant identification.

A delightful but often overlooked garden shrub, Viburnum lantana 'Aureum' has glorious, soft-golden leaves in late spring and pretty heads of creamy-white flowers in late spring. These flowers can be followed by vivid pinkish-red fruit on an established plant. In our opinion it makes a great border plant for brightening lightly shaded areas of a garden!

Supplied Size: 4L containers (30 - 40 cm tall)
