Viburnum lentago

Common name: Nannyberry Viburnum

Native plant

Nannyberry is a large, vase-shaped shrub that has beautiful white flowers in May. The shrub develops fruit in the fall that birds love. Fall color is a fabulous maroon-red. Highly adaptable to all soil types but not as shade-tolerant as Blackhaw. An excellent plant for shrub borders, though it tends to be leggy. Lower-growing shrubs or perennials should be planted in the front of Nannyberry.
