Hello. I just read an extension article about cultivars of native plants, or 'nativars' and I was very glad to see this topic being addressed. That said, I planted a V. dentatum 'Blue Muffin' years ago when I couldn't find the straight up native version. Now that my local native plant nursery has the true native, I'd like to plant one. If I do this, my existing cultivar will most likely start producing more berries (currently it only produces a few each year) I'm not sure if this would be irresponsible or not. When I hike, the viburnums I see in the woods are usually asian species, so it's probably not a big deal. But I'd appreciate some feedback on this. Thank you.
