We have several selections of Viburnum sargentii in our garden and have always enjoyed their long season of interest, but most especially in the fall when their leaves turn bright colors in contrast with their brilliant red fruit. Viburnum sargentii 'Chiquita' is more compact than the selections we have grown to date making it more useful, perhaps, in the smaller urban garden. Its leaves are maple-like and its flower-heads are reminiscent of lace-cap hydrangeas. Selected by Jerry Draeger of McKay Nursery in Waterloo, Wisconsin, it is a shrub that can handle the cold but is equally at home in the milder Pacific Northwest.
