  • Viburnum lentago is a species of Viburnum native to the northeastern and midwestern United States, and in southern Canada from New Brunswick west to southeastern Saskatchewan. Isolated populations are found in the Dakotas, Wyoming, Colorado, and the Appalachian Mountains as far south as Kentucky and Virginia. It is a large shrub or small tree growing upwards to 30 ft tall with a trunk up to ~10 inches diameter and a short trunk, round-topped head, pendulous, flexible branches. The bark is reddish- to grayish-brown, and broken into small scales. The twigs are pale green and covered with rusty down at first, later becoming dark reddish brown, sometimes glaucous, smooth, tough, flexible, and produce an offensive odor when crushed or bruised. The winter buds are light red, covered with pale scurfy down, protected by a pair of opposing scales. Flower-bearing buds are ~3/4 in long, obovate, long pointed; other terminal buds are acute, ~1/3 to 1/2 in long, while lateral buds are much smaller. The bud scales enlarge with the growing shoot and often become leaf-like.
