Viburnum plicatum f. tomentosum 'Pink Beauty'

Viburnum plicatum f. tomentosum 'Pink Beauty'
double-file viburnum
Common name double-file viburnum
Family adoxaceae
Life cycle shrub (Z5-8)
Flowers pink (spring-summer)
Size 10'
Light sun-part shade

After purchasing this from a local nursery, I neglected to plant it right away, causing the plant to be severely drought-stressed, dropping nearly all of its leaves. I planted it at that stage, and luckily it survived, looking very healthy two seasons later. It wasn't until three years later that it bloomed, though. Early flower color is creamy white – we'll see if they age to pink, as the cultivar name suggests.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
