Viburnum acerifoliumAlso known as:
mapleleaf arrow wood,
Viburnum acerifolium is a shrub with strong visual interest. It produces clusters of white flowers, over an extended period of time, beginning as early as May, and lasting as late as August. Flowers are followed by by showy dark-blue berries that will persist through fall. Foliage puts on a good fall show, turning shades of rose to purple.
Easy to grow in a variety of soils and light conditions. This ornamental shrub can grown in deep shade, as well as in full sun. Moist, well drained soil is best. Established plants are tolerant of dry conditions. It is also often found growing along stream margins, where it will be exposed to considerable moisture.
Should be protected from assaults from deer and rabbits.
