Mapleleaf Viburnum is named, rather obviously, for the similarity of its foliage to that of maples. Flowers, appearing in June, are white, held in flat-topped clusters and followed by berries that turn from red to blue-black. Foliage displays striking colors in the fall, including pink burgundy, red or orange. Mapleleaf Viburnum, which is native to the Eastern United States, spreads by suckers. For cross-pollination, plant near another variety of Viburnum.
