Viburnum phlebotrichumis is a deciduous shrub with gray-brown barks inhabiting forests in mountainous regions; it branches well and grows to as tall as 3 meters. Leaves are opposite, blades being ovate or oblong-like lanceolate, 4-9cm long, 2-4cm wide, tips pointed, bases are broadly cuneate or circular, with sharp serrations on margins. Branch tops give birth to corymbous inflorescences in which white or red-tinged flowers come. Peduncles measure 2-3cm long, with a pair of leaves at the bases. Corollas are 6-9mm in diameter, cleft in five, and open obliquely upwards. Fruit (drupe) is oblong, 5-8mm long, and matures red in September-November. Bloom time: April-May.
