Rusty blackhaw at its rustiest
In contrast to the last entry’s look at a single leaf, here’s a group picture showing rusty blackhaw, Viburnum rufidulum, at its rustiest. The Latin word rufidulum, by the way, means ‘reddish,’ but I’d say this photograph is evidence for dropping the -dish (and I hope it doesn’t break when it gets dropped).
As in the previous post, this view is from December 4th at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center. To see various other places where this species grows, you can check out the state-clickable map at the USDA website.
