Angustifolia is a botanical term used for plants that have narrow leaves. In case of this variety of David viburnum the leaves are about 50% narrower but darker green compared to the species. They are evergreen, partly glossy, elliptic, and have 3 prominent, deep veins, which give this shrub an additional 3D image. The stalks, young twigs, and flower buds are rich carmine red or fresh burgundy red, especially in autumn and winter. Insignificant, small, white flowers open in early spring in C.E. conditions or in autumn in milder climates, but are not the key feature. When pollinated they produce deep sky blue fruits ripening in the autumn.

Angustifolia David viburnum has smaller leaves but surprisingly gets a little taller and its overall size lies between the David viburnum species and cinnamon-leaved viburnum. Use it as a small specimen plant in a small front yard, or in combination with other evergreen plants in a border, or as an evergreen companion of standard trees.

David viburnum requires fertile, evenly moist but well-drained, preferably acid soil in part shade. This variety proved hardier than the species and survives short spells of about -25°C without significant damage if placed in part shade.
