Viburnum davidii is a remarkably obliging shrub. The almost exotic looking, lanceolate leaves are divided by three clear veins. Because they are evergreen, they provide a constant, dark green foil for the small white flowers it produces in spring, and for the metallic, blue berries that follow.


Viburnum davidii, commonly known as David Viburnum, was discovered growing in western China during the 19th century by Jean Pierre Armand David, a Christian missionary who travelled throughout China collecting many botanical specimens.
