Viburnum erosum is a deciduous shrub distributed in eastern Asia. As part of the systematic study to understand the phylogenetic relationship of V. erosum, we present the complete chloroplast genome of V. erosum. Its length is 158,624 bp and it has four subregions: 87,060 bp of large single-copy and 18,530 bp of small single-copy regions separated by a pair of inverted repeat regions of 26,517 bp each, including 129 genes (84 protein-coding genes, 8 rRNAs, and 37 tRNAs). Phylogenetic analyses show that V. erosum is sister to Viburnum japonicum, supporting morphological affinity of the two species.
