Tree Viburnum

My first encounter with the Taiwan tree viburnum, Viburnum arboricola, was on our 2008 expedition to Taiwan. Below is our garden specimen, grown from seed from that trip. Some taxonomists consider it a subspecies of Viburnum odoratissima, but we feel it is distinctive enough to warrant species status. While our plant has now topped 20′ in height, we’re still waiting for the first sign of the clusters of white flowers, followed by stalks of bright red fruit – hopefully, this year!
