Japan. Introduced by the National Arboretum in 1966, this large shrub remains a garden favorite. The flat, lace-cap flowers are similar to those of lace-cap hydrangeas with tiny, fertile flowers in the center surrounded by larger sterile flowers. The large, green, maple-like leaves turn astonishing shades of yellow and red in the autumn offering an exciting contrast with the scarlet fruits. Because of its size, Viburnum sargentii `Susquehana is easily shaped into a small tree by removing lower branches.
