Viburnum japonicum / Hakusanboku ハクサンボク

Viburnum japonicum, an evergreen shrub or small tree with gray-brown barks, inhabits coastal areas, branching well to grow thick and reach around 6m in height. Components are green when young but tinge purple later. Leaves are opposite, blades being 5-20cm long, 4-15cm wide, diamond-ovate or diamond-obovate, plus leathery and glossy. On new branch tops, emerge 6-15cm-across corymbs with many white blossoms with odor. Corollas measure 5-8mm across, cleft deeply in five, and open flat. Fruit (drupe) counts 7-9mm-long oblong, mature in red in October-December. Bloom time: March-May.
