FOREST ROUGE® blackhaw viburnum is named for the dark red stems of its new growth and the maroon fall color of its long lasting foliage. Like other blackhaw viburnums, white flowers in May are followed by persisent blue-black fruit much loved by 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.
