|'Chenaultii' resembles the species, V. x burkwoodii except the leaves are smaller. The light pink flowers cover the shrub in late April or early May and are just slightly later than V. x burkwoodii.
This plant is a cross between Viburnum carlesii and Viburnum utile. It is noted not only for its fragrant, snowball-shaped, mid to late spring flowers that are pink in bud, but also for tolerance to pollution, heat, and cold. Leaves are medium to olive green and leathery.
Red fruit persists throughout the winter and beckons birds. Soil should be moderately fertile and moist, yet well-drained in full to partial sun. Evergreen in warmer areas and deciduous in cooler areas. Grows to 8 feet tall and wide.
