Viburnum cinnamomifolium (common name cinnamon-leaved viburnum) is a species of flowering plant in the family Adoxaceae, native to western China. Growing to 5 m (16 ft) tall and broad, it is a substantial evergreen shrub with large, triple-veined, glossy, oval leaves up to 15 cm (6 in) long. Round clusters of tiny white flowers are produced in late spring, followed in late summer and autumn by oval black fruits.[2]
