Viburnum fragrans (farreri)--Fragrant Viburnum

Fragrant viburnum has fragrant white to pink flowers. The buds are pink and fade to white as the flowers open. The plant grows 12 feet tall and blooms in very early spring. Because it blooms so early, the flowers are often killed by frost. The plant can spread beyond its allotted space. It has red fruits that are not very ornamental.

Two cultivars are listed: 'album'--white flower buds and flowers; 'nanum'--dwarf growth habit.
