Description

Shasta doublefile viburnum has a distinctly horizontal branching habit and often grows wider than high. Abundant white flowers are borne in double lines along the branches in May. Fall foliage is a plum-purple color. This cultivar was introduced from the U.S. National Arboretum in 1979.

Viburnums are a versatile genus of multi-stemmed shrubs that are well suited to the home landscape due to their range of sizes and cultural adaptability. Some viburnums are noted for their fragrant flowers; most bear small fruit that may add visual interest. Many viburnums have attractive fall color. There are over 100 different varieties of viburnum at the Chicago Botanic Garden.
