A.k.a. Vibernum trilobum and Viburnum opulus var. trilobum. There is a great deal of confusion surrounding the genomics of this plant as a North American native. Long story short- these plants are sourced from seed stock collected and identified many years ago, from 3 separate sources in southern Wisconsin and northeast Illinois. We are as confident as is currently possible that these represent the North American genome of this species. Hybridization with nearby non-native European Viburnum opulus will be extremely likely.
