'Winterthur' smooth witherod viburnum (Viburnum nudum 'Winterthur')
vy-BURN-um new-dum
Genus:  Viburnum
There are some shrubs that will light up the fall garden with both leaf color and fruit. 'Winterthur' viburnum is one of those shrubs. It begins its display in late summer, as clusters of half-inch-diameter fruit begin to blush pink and become more intense over the course of a few weeks until the whole shrub looks bedecked in bubble gum. The fruit quickly change to a deep blueberry blue as the glossy, leathery leaves become infused with maroon and red. 'Winterthur' maintains a compact, 6-foot-round, multistemmed habit that produces abundant fruit and more intense fall color than the species. In late spring, it's covered with small, off-white, slightly fragrant flowers.
Noteworthy Characteristics:  Eye-catching fruit and fall foliage. Adaptable to a variety of soils.
Care:  Provide full sun to light shade and wet to moderately dry soil. Planting in groups makes for a better fruit display.
Problems:  Nothing serious.
