Viburnum, Linden Dwarf

Linden Viburnum is native to Eastern Asia.  This hardy deciduous shrub has flat clusters of white flowers followed by abundant and persistent bright red berries making it very ornamental.  It is popular and adaptable in cooler regions but Dirr (Manual of Woody Landscape Plants) advises that in zone 8 it should be planted in "moist soil and partial shade".  This selection was shared with us by Brian Upchurch who operated Highland Creek Nursery, an exceptional source of unusual plants in the mountains of North Carolina.  Mr. Upchurch obtained this dwarf selection  in Japan but was unable to learn of a varietal name, only "Daruma type - no name".  In addition to being of a smaller size it appears to have smaller leaves.
