Guelder Rose (Viburnum opulus)

Guelder Rose, Viburnum opulus, isn't a rose at all, but a viburnum like the Wayfaring Tree. It is, notwithstanding, a very beautiful shrub with all year round interest, which has been here since at least the Iron Age. It has large lobed leaves which turn well in the autumn, and globes of white flowers in early summer, followed by bright red berries, popular with birds, particularly Mistle thrushes. It does well in heavy soils. Guelder Rose bark is used by herbalists for a variety of ailments. See below for more information.
