Viburnum cassinoides is commonly called witherod viburnum or Northern Wild Raisin. It is typically found in low woods, fields, swamps, marshes, pond peripheries and bogs. V. cassinoides is a dense, rounded, multi-stemmed, upright-spreading, deciduous shrub that turns attractive shades of orange red to red purple in fall. Creamy white flowers in flat-topped clusters bloom in late spring. Flowers are followed by green fruit that turns pink to red to blue to black in fall. Berries provide sharp contrast to the foliage and will remain on the plant after foliage drop to provide excellent winter interest. For best cross-pollination and subsequent fruit display, plant shrubs in groups rather than as single specimens.
