We presented the second complete chloroplast genome of the plant. The length of chloroplast genome is 158,587 bp, consisting of four subregions: 87,050 bp of LSC and 18,503 bp of SSC regions separated by a pair of 26,517 bp IR regions. It includes 129 genes (84 protein-coding genes, 8 rRNAs, and 37 tRNAs). A low-level of molecular variation within Viburnum erosum was found with 16 SNPs and 49 indels. The phylogenetic tree shows that the two accessions of V. erosum are clustered with Viburnum japonicum with no resolution between the species, suggesting that chloroplast genome in these species evolve slowly.
