Ornamental Shrub with Showy Spring Flowers 


The Arrowwood Viburnum, Viburnum dentatum, is a fast-growing, deciduous shrub with showy spring flowers. Plant a few as a hedge along the house or some in a naturalized area for spring interest.

It will mature to a 6'-12 upright shrub with a 6'-8' spread. It grows well in full sun to full shade. It is adaptable to most soil types, but prefers moist to wet soils.


You’ll love how the four inch summer flowers appear like small bouquets of tiny white blossoms. The raised stamens give them a delightfully fuzzy appearance that will tempt you to reach out and touch.


The small bouquets eventually give way to black blueberry-like drupes that will be a feast for your wildlife. If not eaten, the fruit may persist through winter.


The four inch ovate, dark green leaves lend a lush appearance to your shrub all summer long, and offer a flash of reds and yellows to the landscape with the arrival of autumn.


If you’re interested in creating an encouraging habitat for wildlife, the Arrowwood Viburnum will be a useful addition to your yard. Its foliage is an important food source for the Azure butterfly and several species of moth.


Many types of birds not only eat the Viburnum’s fruit, but also use the shrub for shelter and even nesting.


Native Americans once used the branches of this Viburnum to make arrows, thus the name.


It’s a hardy plant that shouldn’t give you any trouble, and a good choice for almost any landscape.

Wet soils Review by Alice N

This plant works well in low spots in the yard. Mine seems to get bigger every year and that means more spring flowers.
