Viburnum prunifolium

Common name: Blackhaw

Native plant

Blooms with white flowers in May, followed by the dark rose fruit that changes to blue-black in the fall. Birds relish the fruit. Blackhaw is one of the more shade-tolerant viburnums. The branches are perpendicular to the stem, unlike most other vase-shaped viburnums. The shape and large size provide an excellent specimen plant as well as a good screen. One of the best-clipped hedges, along with Cornelian Cherry Dogwood (Cornus mas).
