Plant Information

David Viburnum is sold in the nursery trade as a distinctive leathery leaved evergreen shrub that does well in massed plantings. Morphology: David Viburnum is a compact evergreen shrub that grows in the shape of a dome to a height and width of 3’ and 5’ respectively. The elliptic shaped leaves are arranged in an opposite fashion. Mature leaves are 3”-6” long and 1”-2” wide. Leaves have three very distinctive parallel veins and are dark glossy green above and pale beneath. In the fall the leaves can take on a dull crimson to purplish color. Some clones of this species will set flowers. Flowers are small and white and are arranged in cymes about 3” across at the branch tips. Flowers will morph into fruit as the season progresses. Mature berries are olive-shaped bright metallic blue drupes that are about ¼” long. Fruit is very attractive to the local song birds. Adaptation: David Viburnum does best in partial shade. In hot climates the plants can be sun burned if they receive too much light. Pests: Root weevil can be a problem on this plant.
