Viburnum dentatum

Common name: Arrowwood Viburnum

Native plant

An eastern US viburnum that has been introduced in the Chicago area. Blooms in May with clusters of white flowers. Like most viburnums, it needs only a few hours of sun to do well. However, it will grow in full sun on good garden soil. Fruit is blue and devoured by birds during fall migration. Fall color is maroon-red. I use this plant frequently in tree/shrub borders on 3-4‘ centers. Arrowwood can get leggy, but this can be prevented if it is pruned to the ground every couple of years.
