This shrub, 1 to 4 m high, has ascending branches. Its opposite, thick leaves are oval, acuminate and finely toothed. Its small flowers form a compound, clearly pedunculated cyme. Its fruit is a red drupe which turns dark blue. It contains a flattened core. Viburnum flowers in spring.
The species is abundant in humid and peaty environments in the more central regions of Quebec.

This viburnum is one of the characteristic shrubs of wetlands and burned forest areas.
Towards the end of October, its fruits constitute the main food of the flocks of American robins which descend south to cross the St. Lawrence valley.

Known as pimbina, the fruits of two other species of Quebec viburnum, the three-lobed viburnum (trilobium) and the edible viburnum (Viburnum edule), are edible for humans; those of the cassinoid viburnum are not.
