Viburnum sieboldii Miq.
This viburnum is native to Japan.
Identification: This shrub, or sometimes small tree, is 15-20' (4.6-6.1 m) high (rarely 30' (9.1 m)) and 10-15' (3-4.6 m) around. It is rounded but fairly sparse. Leaves occur in opposing pairs, 2-6" (5-15 cm) × 1½-3" (3.8-7.6 cm), with serrated edges and prominent veins. Sometimes the leaves become red or purple in the fall. Flowerheads have many tiny white blossoms. Fruits are ½" (1.3 cm), pink, darkening to blue-black. They extend beyond the foliage, inviting birds.
