Viburnum Brandywine™ Description
Enjoy one of the most spectacular autumn displays with Brandywine™ viburnum (Viburnum nudum). You simply must grow this durable native plant to believe it! Spring brings the emergence of very glossy leaves, and is soon followed by foamy white flower clusters. They develop into green berries, and as summer progresses, turn to a luminous ivory color. By early autumn, they begin to flush bright pink and ripen to blue-purple, creating a mixed color effect that becomes even more stunning when the foliage turns bright red.
This Proven Winners selection does not require a pollinator to develop berries, so you only need to plant one. That makes it beautifully suited to specimen planting, but it’s also great in multiples as a hedge or backdrop to a perennial garden. Once you see how beautiful it is, you’ll want to fill your yard with Brandywine!
