Viburnum cassinoides, also known as Possumhaw, Wild Raisin, or Withe Rod, is a versatile shrub that can easily grow in a range of soil types, from average to wet and even boggy soils. It prefers moist loams and thrives in full sun to part shade. For best results, plant shrubs in groups to ensure cross-pollination and fruit display. This deciduous shrub features creamy white flowers in early summer and fruit that changes color from green to pink, red, blue, and ultimately black in the fall. The berries provide a striking contrast to the leaves, which turn shades of orange-red, dark red, and purple in autumn. Viburnum cassinoides is native to northeastern North America and can be found in low woods, fields, swamps, marshes, pond peripheries, and bogs. This shrub is also noted for its handsome fruit displays and is commonly used in shrub borders, foundations, hedges, roadside plantings, and water garden peripheries. It is an ornamental shrub that adds interest to naturalized areas and is an excellent specimen or accent plant. The leaves and fruit are also edible, with the sweet flesh of the fruit hanging on the plant well into winter and the leaves used as a tea substitute. Viburnum cassinoides is an outstanding choice for gardeners looking for a beautiful and practical addition to their landscapes.
