Popcorn Viburnum

Viburnum plicatum f. plicatum 'Popcorn'

Profuse clusters of small, popcorn ball-shaped blooms line each branch in spring. Handsome, deeply veined, green foliage turns red to purple in fall. A lovely compact hedge or foundation plant. This selection is earlier flowering than others of its type, and more heat and drought tolerant when established. Semi-evergreen.
