Viburnum nudum Brandywine™ is a cultivar of Viburnum nudum, also known as smooth witherod, a mounding, multi-stemmed, deciduous shrub that typically grows in the wild to 5-12’ tall and wide in low woods, swamps, and bogs through the eastern half of the United States; Brandywine™ is the trade name of cultivar 'Bulk,' which is a dwarf variety, only growing to five to six feet tall, and is known for its vivid colored berries. Since it is originally native to swamps and boggy areas, Brandywine™ viburnum prefers medium to wet soils, and tolerates full to part sun.

Brandywine™ viburnum produces clusters of aromatic white flowers in the late spring and early summer, which are followed by clusters of small berries that change colors as they ripen, turning from a bright, light pink to deeper pinks and reds to blue-purples and blacks; berries are persistent through the fall and contrast well against the red-purple hues taken on by fall foliage. This viburnum's flowers are attractive to butterflies and pollinators, and its berries provide attractive winter interest and are eaten by birds.

Note: To produce fruit, Viburnum nudum Brandywine™ should be planted with at least one other Viburnum that blooms at the same time in order to successfully cross-pollinate.
