Fruit production is increased by having another cultivar of Arrowwood near by to cross pollinate the flowers. Local native stands of Arrowwood will also act as a cross pollinator. Prefers well drained soil but adapts well to a variety of soils. Withstands high pH, heavy soils and vagaries of climate. Possibly one of the most durable Viburnums for the East and Midwest. Pruning is best done immediately after flowering, buds form the summer prior to blooming. Medium moisture. Deciduous shrub. Fertilize in early spring by applying a slow release fertilizer specialized for trees and shrubs. Follow the label for the recommended rate of application.
Makes a great hedge or foundation planting, excellent for residential landscapes. Also good in groupings, masses, and as a filler in the shrub border, good as a screen and for use in parking lots.
Creamy white flowers appear in summer followed by bright blue berries which appear in late summer. Attractive to birds and other wildlife. NOTE: Berries are NOT edible!!
