I think it could be Viburnum opulus (Guelder rose) - there are a few varieties so you can do a search on Shoot

Viburnum opulus

Comment from Miriam Mesa-Villalba

In forum: Viburnum opulus

The large clusters of round, brilliant red, glossy - almost translucent - fruits remain on the plant throughout the winter and look particularly attractive against a background of snow, at least until they are eaten by birds. The common name 'guelder' comes from Gelderland, the Dutch province where the tree was first taken into cultivation.

Ornamental pond and planting

In forum: Ornamental plants

Hi all
I have an ornamental pond as well as a wildlife pond beyond the veggies. The pic shows the slate stones and ornamental grasses surrounding, and you can make out the amusing Juncus grass (wiggly stems). There are also some lilies and alchemilla that haven't yet come into growth. I have backed the pond with a slope of spring bulbs, red and yellow cornus (dogwoods), a ground level bird bath, and ground cover like ajuga, liverwort, hardy geranium, spurge. Further back is a viburnum opulus (?) white flowers, red berries grows in the wild) which I am very excited about. Golden rod and rose of sharon also refuse to leave! Any other complimentary planting I would be grateful, it's a dry, but fertile area, prone to couch grass and other unwanted perennial weeds.

I could name you loads of perennials for a moist bed in good light but not so many shrubs. Here goes, Phormium, Bamboo, Viburnum opulus, Amelanchier canadensis, Mahonia (if not too sunny).
