Ornamental Value

Hate your neighbor? Tired of looking at the junk in his yard (or maybe your own yard.. we’re not judging!)? Don’t want to stare at that blank wall while enjoying your backyard space? Instead of putting up a wood or pvc fence, consider a green living fence! Arrowwood Viburnum is definitely one of the top choice plants for screening. This fairly large shrub grows into dense thickets with new canes growing up from the ground each season. Dark green, serrated foliage covers the shrub all summer. There are several cultivars on the market ranging in mature size from 6-ft tall to 12-ft tall. This shrub isn’t just utilitarian however, it also offers many attractive features to add to the ornamental landscape. Arrowwood Viburnum’s flat-topped white flower clusters appear in the spring and eventually turn into deep blue-black fruit in the fall. If grown in full sun the foliage will turn colors in the fall ranging from yellow-orange to deep crimson red. Birds and wildlife enjoy the fruit and protective growth. Arrowwood Viburnum will grow in a wide range of soil conditions and is moderately salt and drought tolerant.
