(Dave and Dorothy Rodal allowed us to cut this viburnum in their garden.) Viburnum plicatum tomentosum 'Lanarth' was raised as a seedling in the garden of P.D. Williams of Lanarth, Cornwall, England before 1930. What makes this particular form so useful is that it is basically sterile, producing very few fruits. Gardeners still get the beautiful double rows of floral-heads along the tiered branches in the spring, and they still get the reddish fall color in the leaves. They do not feed the birds, but they also do not get unwanted seedlings. The lace-cap inflorescences are very showy with individual sterile florets up to 2 inches across. This is a large, showy shrub that has stood the test of time.

Mid to late May.  10 ft. x 10 ft.
