Description

Downy-leaved arrowwood viburnum is a species native to Canada and the eastern U.S. found primarily in the woodland understory. It has a compact habit with branching finer than most other viburnums. White flowers in May are followed by red fruit that matures to black. Fall foliage is dark red.

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.
