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 is also known for its resistance to getting bores. 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.
