Based on the name I was expecting this variety to have superior fall color, but they have always been very muted and not any different than my Arrowwood Viburnum 'Blue Muffin'. 'Autumn Jazz' has a more sprawling wild shape than 'Blue Muffin' which is quite rounded and more compact.

I got these two varieties because I had read that they are not self-fertile and that you need two different varieties that will bloom at the same time. In that respect they work well together and both set fruit.
