Viburnum x 'Nantucket'


'Nantucket' Viburnum came from a cross made by the late Dr. Egolf between V. x 'Eskimo' and V. macrocephalum f. keteleeri at the National Arboretum in 1988.  For some reason this excellent plant only recently got the notice it deserves.  The large white ball-shaped flowers appear in April and are mildly fragrant.  The neat dark green leaves are semi-evergreen, and Viburnum 'Nantucket' has shown excellent heat resistance, according to Dr. Michael Dirr.  The habit is somewhat upright, and would be effective as a hedge as well as a specimen plant.
