Introducing Viburnum lantanoides – the unique shrub that's sure to catch your eye! With fragrant, flat-topped clusters of small, white flowers that bloom in May-June, this shrub boasts beautiful bronze-red or purple-pink autumn coloration. Its pendulous branches take root where they touch the ground, forming obstacles that easily trip (or hobble) walkers – hence the common name. Apart from being a visual treat, Viburnum lantanoides is also a great habitat for wildlife, providing food and cover for mammals and birds. The large showy flowers on the outer edge of the clusters are sterile, while the small inner flowers have both male and female parts, making this shrub all the more fascinating.
