Mapleleaf Viburnum

Multiple, low, spreading, sparsely branched stems with comparatively large, lobed and lightly toothed leaves that resemble those of a maple tree. Terminal clusters of small white flowers in early summer are followed by tiny blue-black fruits that may persist into winter. The leaves turn brilliant shades of red in autumn. Compact size and low water requirements make this a great understory shrub for shady areas.
