'Lucidum' is a vigorous form of of Viburnum with slightly larger leaves than the species. Also the flowerheads, opening white in March and April, are larger than the type. In all other aspects similar. When trained to tree form, it provides a very ornamental and manageable screening solution for a domestic garden. The leaves are dark green and elliptic; blackish-blue berries follow the tiny, blush-white flowers. The shrub tolerates pruning very well, but it is important to time this carefully if flowering is desired. Hardy.
