Viburnum erosum / Kobanogamazumi コバノガマズミ

Viburnum erosum, a deciduous shrub with gray-brown barks, inhabiting forests in mountainous regions, branches well to grow thick. Leaves are opposite, blades measuring 4-9cm in length, and 2-4cm in width, ovate to oblong-like lanceolate, with tips, pointed and bases broadly cuneate to circular, margins being with sharp serrations. Branch ends emerge 3-7cm-long corymbs that bear many small white flowers; peduncles have dense stellate hairs around them—the flowers 5mm across, cleft in five, and open flat. The fruit (drupe) is oval-like, circular, 5-7mm long, and mature red in September-November. Bloom time: April-May.
