What is Viburnum dilatatum
The viburnum wrightii is an alpine form of Viburnum dilatatum , native to Japan, Korea and Russia. It grows wild in mountain forests from Hokkaido to Kyushu. Its leaves and flowers are smaller than V. dilatatum. The leaves of V. dilatatum are wide and round with many hairs, and the tips of the leaves are a little thin and have prominent lateral veins, while the leaves of V. dilatatum are wider and round. In V. wrightii, the tips of the leaves become sharp and narrow and have shallow triangular serrated edges. Its fruits are larger and more spherical than those of Vi. dilatatum, and it is beautiful when the leaves turn red in autumn. Also, the fruit of Vi. dilatatum is upward-facing, while that of V. dilatatum is drooping. V. dilatatum has a better taste and is used for eating fresh and making fruit wine. Native to Japan, the Korean Peninsula, and China, it is a cold-resistant evergreen shrub in the family Lempaxaceae, which produces vermilion buds and fragrant white clustered flowers in May and June. In October-November, coinciding with flowering, the oval-shaped fruits ripen to dark purple. The fruits are used in flower arrangements and as cut flowers. It bears red berries in the fall.
