Mrs. Schiller's Delight Viburnum
Viburnum obovatum 'Mrs. Schiller's Delight'
The 'Mrs. Schiller's Delight' is a type of shrub in the Viburnaceae family. It was originally introduced by Steve Reifler, who was a nurseryman from Florida. He named the shrub after his friend, Mrs. Schiller, because he thought it looked similar to a dwarf youpon holly cultivar called 'Schilling'.
This shrub can be deciduous, semi-evergreen, or evergreen depending on the zone where it is grown. In zones 6 and 7, it typically grows as a deciduous shrub, but becomes evergreen as we move further south.
