'Watanabei' Doublefile Viburnum has beautiful white lacecap flowers starting in May and intermittently continuing throughout the summer. The habit is significantly more compact than other Viburnum plicatum tomentosum cultivars and the reblooming attribute, while requiring consistent soil moisture, makes Viburnum 'Watanabei' particularly useful. 'Watanabei' was found near Mt Fuji by famous Japanese nurseryman Mr. Watanbe and introduced by Wada Nursery in the 1950s. Red fruit is sparely produced in late summer, followed by nice reddish burgundy fall color.
