Red Balloon® viburnum is super showy and super easy to grow. This compact, well-branched hybrid has loads of bright red fruit, tightly packed into show clusters in late summer and fall. White flowers appear in April and May. This cross between V. lantana and V. rhytidophyllum has a rounded upright habit. Fruiting is enhanced by planting it near V. 'Mohican' or V. rhytidophylloides 'Alleghany'.
