  • Posted by ILPARW (southeast Pennsylvania - Zone 6b) on May 4, 2019 10:26 AM concerning plant:
    I've only seen one of this 'Erie' cultivar of the Linden Viburnum that is native to East Asia. I've only seen few Linden Viburnums around in the Midwest & Mid-Atlantic of the USA. The Erie Viburnum was planted in the yard of a plant enthusiast in the west suburbs of Philadelphia, PA, who specially ordered it. I worked for that lady in her landscape for several years around 2010. It is a very pretty deciduous shrub, and like many viburnums, it is a neat, clean shrub with pretty flowers, foliage, and fall color.
