Viburnum acerifolium

This comes from somewhat dry woodlands in Eastern North America where it forms a modest suckering understory shrub. The mostly three-lobed leaves are often attractively bronzed when they emerge in the spring and, as the botanical name indicates, the majority of them look like maple leaves. The flattened, lace-cap arrangement of the inflorescences of Viburnum acerifolium measure about three inches across. In the late summer, the egg-shaped fruits turn bright red and later purple black. The fall color of the leaves is impressive with a mix of rose, red and purple.
