Viburnum plicatum 'Mariesii'
See it in the Rock Garden
A very popular ornamental plant, both in its native area (China,
Japan, Korea and Taiwan) and elsewhere in temperate regions.
This form of Viburnum plicatum with its distinct
tiered branches was discovered by English botanist and plant
collector Charles Maries (1851-1902).
Easy to grow in sunny or partially shaded positions, 'Mariesii'
thrives in most soils as long as they have good drainage.
As well as it's fantastic autumn colour, 'Mariesii' is covered
in large lacecap heads of white flowers in late spring.
