In a Nutshell:
* Viburnum setigerum is a shrub with opposite, simple leaves , and flexible, arching stems. The flowers are white, borne in spring. Drupes ripen to red in the fall. more...
* Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Prefers moist loams, but tolerates a wide range of soils including slightly boggy ones. Prune lightly, only if needed, in fall. Pruning after flowering may be done but will eliminate some of the late summer fruit display. For best cross-pollination and subsequent fruit display, plant shrubs in groups rather than as single specimens. more...
* Tea viburnum is noted for producing perhaps the best fall fruit display of the any of the viburnums. It is a rounded, multi-stemmed, upright-spreading, deciduous shrub that typically grows to 8-12’ tall and 5-8’ wide. Mature shrubs tend to lack foliage at the base. Small white flowers arranged in flat-topped clusters (cymes to 2” wide) bloom in April-May. Flowers are not particularly showy. Flowers are followed by clusters of ovoid bright red berries in fall. Berry production is often so abundant as to cause the stems to arch downward from the weight. Pointed, ovate-lanceolate to ovate-oblong, slightly toothed, blue-green leaves (3-5” long). Foliage turns purplish in fall. Leaves were once used to make tea, hence the common name. more...
* Specimen, groups or mass plantings. Shrub borders, informal hedges, screens or roadside plantings. Good selection for low spots and peripheries of water gardens, streams or ponds. more...
