Arrowwoods were favored by native Americans for their use in making arrows as the branches are very straight.

This arrowwood is called PAPOOSE™ arrowwood because it is a much smaller version of a larger arrowwood shrub. PAPOOSE™ grows to only about four feet tall and wide and has a rounded form, making it a truly compact and versatile shrub. It has dark green leaves which appear with pink tips, and bears clusters of small white flowers in June. These are followed by bunches of dark blue berries that are irresistible to birds.

Viburnums are a versatile genus of multi-stemmed shrubs that are well suited to the home landscape due to their range of sizes and cultural adaptability. Some viburnums are noted for their fragrant flowers; most bear small fruit that may add visual interest. Many viburnums have attractive fall color. There are over 100 different varieties of viburnum at the Chicago Botanic Garden.
