Native to parts of China, Viburnum betulifolium has corymbs (flat-topped flower clusters) of white flowers in early summer followed by masses of vivid red berries in autumn.
The display of fruit is magnificent on an established shrub, lasting well into winter. The leaves are interesting, dark green and similar in appearance to those of a Birch.
We find that Viburnum betulifolium are best planted in groups of three, if possible in the same hole or right next to each other, to effectively grow together as one plant.
This encourages better pollination between the plants and increases the amount of berries produced. One of the finest garden plants for a display of colourful autumn berries.
