The tall, rounded shrub Sargent's cranberry-bush viburnum has a coarse branching habit. A distinctive odour emanates from the wood. The bark is light, delicately flaking on the oldest trunks and smooth on new branches. Except for the top, leaves are three-lobed, with sharp blades and erroneously large-serrated margins, measuring 5-12 cm long and 3-11 cm wide on petioles up to 4 cm long, totally naked or pubescent. Purple anthers adorn the white lacecap blooms. The vivid red fruits remain on the tree throughout the winter. The new leaf is burgundy in colour, turning to dark green in the summer and then to a wine-red tint in the fall, adding to the seasonal appeal.
