‘Emerald Triumph’ is the result of a cross between V. ‘Allegheny’ and V. burejaeticum. This is a compact, rounded, deciduous shrub that typically matures to 6-8’ tall and as wide. Showy white flowers in flat clusters (cymes to 3” wide) bloom in late April-May. Flowers give way to fruits (drupes) that mature to bright red in late summer but turn black by autumn. Leathery, glossy dark green leaves turn bronze to dark red in fall.
