Viburnum plicatum

Standing facing these shrubs, on the right we see two specimens of Viburnum plicatum ‘Mariesii’. These are the original plantings of Count Arnost Emanuel Silva-Tarouca. These viburnums are the first to bloom with pure white flowers and in autumn their leaves turn deep red to scarlet. In recent years, they have been regenerating regularly, which means that they repeat flowering in autumn. On the left is ‘Lanarth’, which was planted here in 2000, flowering white just as ‘Mariesii’ is flowering, extending the white flowering of this group.
