Note: At least one source places them in the Adoxaceae Family

Viburnums consist of a very large group of 150 to 170 species of shrubs and small trees that have opposite leaves and bear clusters of white PGC-S-Viburnum-carlesii-Aurora-05-2012-4flowers followed by berry-like fruit. Colors for the fruit vary by species and range from red, yellow, blue and black. Many of the flowers are fragrant and, depending on the species or cultivar, begin blooming in very early spring into the summer. They often have distinctive fall color.

The shrubs are generally vigorous growing and have few serious problems. Most are shade tolerant and are good companions for plants such as hostas.
