Well, wowee, look at the palette Mother Nature uses in
coloring Viburnum acerifolium for Fall! From pale pink to deep
maroon! Note the black berries in the center of my puddle of
leaves! They started out red, then purple and finally black.
Highly variable and they can be red or orange, the
plants on our property, of which we have many, tend toward the mauve
pink, burgundy, wine hues.
This is a freshly dug young plant from our garden so
you can see the root structure. You can see the woody running
root and 3 nodes, two of which have a few almost woody feeder roots.
As you can imagine, this plant, by nature does not 'root in' to a
quart pot the way a fibrous rooted plant does. Soil will fall
off in planting - the tough roots aren't bothered a bit by that.
Just replace soil and water in well. New vertical stems arise
from the nodes. Prefers acid, well-drained soil.
