|The name possum-haw can be Ilex decidua, Viburnum acerfolium or Viburnum nudun depending upon your gardening region. That's the problem with common names - they mean different things to different people. Since Ilex decidua is commonly called possum-haw, the nursery was correct. Best wishes with your new plant!
