Viburnum - Chicago Lustre® Arrowwood

Easy to Grow - Months of Color

Chicago Lustre® Arrowwood Viburnum, Viburnum dentatum 'Synnestvedt', is selected for its upright rounded, dense habit and glossy, deep green foliage that turns red-purple in fall.

The creamy white flowers bloom in June and mature into clusters of globe-shaped fruit.  The fruit are deep porcelain blue to blue-purple, maturing in August and providing food for the birds.

Chicago Lustre is a medium-sized to large-sized ornamental shrub maturing at about 8-10 feet in height and width, although larger under optimum conditions.

It has an upright oval growth habit in youth, becoming arching, spreading, and suckering with age.  It has a medium growth rate and prefers full sun to partial shade with moist, well-drained soils.

The foliage turns yellow and progresses through red into purple in autumn.

This viburnum is highly adaptable to dry soils, poor soils, and soils of various pH, heat, drought, and pollution.  It makes an excellent formal or informal hedge, border, entrance way, foundation, utilitarian, group planting, naturalizing, or specimen shrub.  

Viburnum tends to be multi-season plants with ornamental value throughout a large part of the season.

Wildlife plant. Review by pole sitter
Chicago Lustre arrowwood viburnum sets on a lot of fruit and the birds flock to them as I have quite a few of them on my acreage. They do not disappoint. .
Beautiful arching habit Review by Judi
I have numerous types viburnum in my gardens, one being Chicago Luster. It has matured into a beautiful arching bush. As with all viburnum it has multi-seasonal interest. In blooms later then my Arrowwoods and Double Files, in June, which helps keep my gardens in constant bloom, not only with perennials and annuals. The leaves are glossy green and the blossoms are tiny forming large flat clusters. They are slightly sweet scented, but not a strong scent. The birds love the small berries. In the fall the foliage turns a beautiful deep purple maroon color. This is beautiful next to my Arrowwoods yellow, orange, purple foliage. Some may prefer a brighter showier fall color in a viburnum, but I feel this bush provides an added color interest. I, personally, like a variety of fall color in my gardens, just like I do with my flower beds. This is a beautiful bush, especially once it has matured, but does need plenty of room for its arching branches.
