Viburnum x pragense

Common name Prague viburnum
Family adoxaceae
Life cycle evergreen shrub (Z5-8)
Flowers white (spring)
Size 6-10'
Light sun-part shade
Cultural notes prefers fertile, moist soil

Hybrid between leatherleaf viburnum (V. rhytidophyllum) and service viburnum (V. utile) with handsome glossy dark-green leaves. Ours was just a rooted twig when we bought it a number of years ago, and took a while to come into its own. But by now, it has blossomed into a fair-size shrub, and blooms reliably every year. The buds are pink-tinged, the flowers open a pure white, fading to cream after a few days.

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