Common Name Maple Leaf Viburnum Variety  
Regional Names  
Botanical Name Viburnum acerifolium
Description Viburnums are well established in the trade, but rarely is this species offered. Viburnum acerifolium is the most drought tolerant species in our garden and is often found growing in association with species rufidulum, also known as Rusty Black Haw. Drought tolerance is just one of many attributes the Maple Leaf Viburnum offers the gardener. Stoloniferous but not aggressively so, it produces the same flat head clusters of snowy white flowers commonly associated with Viburnums. The spring and summer maple shaped foliage will surprise you in the Fall with an intense selection of pinks, reds, to purple-plum fall color. The fruit mature to black, and rather flat, attracting several species of birds. Also a host and nectar source for the Spring Azure Butterfly, Celastrina ladon. Matures size is approximately 5'High x 6'Wide.
