Genetic Improvement of Woody Landscape Plants: Case Studies in Viburnum
William A. Hoch and Brent H. McCown
The genus Viburnum represents a group of highly diverse ornamental plants, which fill many landscape niches. Viburnums possess a wide range of ornamental characteristics, including showy flowers (some fragrant), attractive foliage, colorful and persistent fruit, pleasing habit, and striking fall color.
The goal of this breeding project is to combine the divergent ornamental characteristics of V. lantana (fruit display and hardiness) and V. carlesii (fragrant flowers, compact habit, and attractive fall color) into novel ornamental clones.
