Lil’ Ditty® Withrod Viburnum

This dwarf viburnum is covered with creamy white flowers in late spring. If planted near a pollinator it will produce a showy crop of fall fruit that starts green before turning pink to red to blue, and finally black. The fruit provides winter interest and food for songbirds. This is an adaptable, easy to grow landscape plant that is good for mass plantings, foundations and the outer edge of water gardens. Native.
