Nannyberry/Sheepberry (Viburnum lentago) 莢蒾

Beautiful flowering shrub with edible fruit and nice red fall color!  It is very hardy and easy to grow.  Best growing in full sun to partial shade location.  White flowers in late spring to early summer and ripe dark fruit in mid to late fall.  Flowers attract bees and butterflies, ripe fruit attract birds.   I have tried the berries myself, they are rather sweet!   USDA Zones:2-8.  Mature size:12′-15′(H) X 10′-12′(W).  But it is easy to prune to keep the desired height, often seen pruned height are 4′-6′, that way the plant will branch more.   Otherwise, the plant will be a large shrub or small tree shape.   Propagate by seeds or cuttings.  Low maintenance!

漂亮的開花灌木,春天有花可賞,秋天有著可食果實與轉紅的美麗秋色可以享受!  很耐寒強健又容易栽種.  最好栽種在全日照到半日照處.  春末夏初開白色頂生的小花簇生的花序不小,秋末可食性熟果轉黑. 春花是吸引蜂蝶的蜜源,秋天的熟果吸引鳥類覓食. 我自己吃過它的果實,蠻甜蠻好吃的!  極其耐寒不甚耐熱.  成熟株高12-15呎高,寬幅10-12呎.  但是很常見經由修剪高度做成綠籬的,看到的通常將它們維持在4-6呎的高度.  修剪能刺激植株多分株看起來較為飽滿.  不修剪的話就能長成較高的大型灌木或小樹型.  繁殖以種子或扦插來進行.  低維護的花園植物!
