Noteworthy Characteristics

This arrowwood viburnum cultivar is an upright, vase-shaped, multi-stemmed, deciduous shrub which typically matures to 8-10' tall with a slightly larger spread, but may grow several feet taller in optimum growing conditions. Non-fragrant white flowers in flat-topped cymes (to 4" diameter) appear in late spring. Flowers give way to blue-black, berry-like drupes which are quite attractive to birds and wildlife. Ovate, toothed, glossy dark green leaves (to 4" long). As the common name suggests, foliage turns attractive shades of yellow, orange and burgundy in autumn.
