Viburnum cylindricum is an evergreen shrub or small tree; it usually grows up to 8 metres tall, exceptionally reaching 15 metres. In cultivation it is likely to be no more than 5 metres tall. The plant is sometimes harvested from the wild for local use as a food, medicine and source of materials. It is cultivated for medicinal use in the homegardens of southern Yunnan, can be used as a pioneer in reforestation and is sometimes grown as an ornamental.
