The Wayfarer (Viburnum Iantana) is a deciduous shrub with soft mid-green downy leaves. The flat heads of creamy white flowers of the Wayfarer are borne in early summer on its arching stems.
The Wayfarer thrives on chalky alkaline soils and was traditionally planted along Pilgrimage routes, hence its name.
The Wayfarer bears red berries gradually turning to black which are attractive to birds and other wildlife. They are commonly grown as an ornamental plant for their flowers and berries.
The fruit is mildly toxic, and can cause vomiting or diarrhea if consumed in large enough quantities.
