Viburnum rafinesqueanum

Common name: Downy Arrowwood

Native plant

Downy Arrowwood, in our opinion, may be one of the finest smaller viburnums native to Illinois. The flowers are softer white and are more tighly clustered than other natives in the group. The leaves tend to be very glossy and dark green, which turn a deep crimson in the fall. The only draw back that we can tell is that it grows very slowly (slower than you think). The wait is worth every minute, though. If you're still skeptical, come and see our mature colony we have growing here at the nursery.
