'Cardinal Candy' is a perfect name for this Viburnum that comes to us from China, Korea and Japan. Large fragrant heads of creamy white flowers in late spring, turn into clusters of luscious cardinal red berries. These are retained into the winter months, when they become "candy" for Cardinals, and other birds.
