Moonlit Lace™ Viburnum. I found this selection in a small specialty nursery in Japan and I was told that it was a hybrid between V. tinus and V. davidii. V. tinus does excellent in the heat and humidity of the Southeast, but V. davidii does horribly. I always say that it never looks better than the day it is planted here in the South. It is all downhill from there. About the longest I have seen a V. davidii survive here is 5 years. This is one species that is not made for heat and humidity, nevertheless, its form and foliage are top notch. But if a landscape architect ever puts this species in a landscape design for the Southeast, you immediately know that he does not know his plants. But this hybrid selection has performed superbly. We haven't lost a single one to root rot or anything else for that matter. I have left it outside in a container with no protection and it has survived well into the single digits Fahrenheit. Presently, it looks like it will only get to about 3' with a slightly greater spread. The flowers are very similar to V. tinus and our plants have not set fruit. So this might be due to the fact that it is a hybrid. It has done well in full sun to part shade. Michael Dirr said that it is one of the nicer Viburnums that he has seen lately.
