Viburnum suspensum

Viburnum suspensum

Sandankwa Viburnum

Viburnum suspensum Lindl.

vie-BURN-um  sus-PEN-sum

Caprifoliaceae

 

Explanation of name: Viburnum is the Latin name for a similar species. Suspensum refers to the tendency of the flower clusters to dangle.

 

Natural range: Ryukyu Islands (near Japan).

 

Recognition: Shrub with opposite leaves having deeply indented veins and slightly serrate-crenate margins. The leaves have a vague odor of bacon when crushed. The small, fragrant, pink-white flowers are in congested droopy inflorescences and are tube-shaped. Differs from V. odoratissimum by the conspicuously indented veins, by the bacon odor, and by having prominently raised conspicuous lenticels.

 

Landscape uses: One of the commonest clipped-hedge and foundation species around South Florida
