If you're a gardener who likes to get the biggest bang for your buck, the Chicago Lustre® Arrowwood Viburnum (Viburnum dentatum 'Synnestvedt') is a shrub that dazzles season after season. With vibrant fall color, unique berries, and a stunning display of white spring blooms, this lustrious shrub is a winning addition to your yard!
This versatile shrub also lights up with clusters of white blooms that stand out against its even, medium-green foliage in summer. Bees and butterflies love these petite flowers, and you will love that blooms often signal the coming of the Chicago Lustre®'s blue-black berries.
The Chicago Lustre® Arrowwood Viburnum, like other Viburnums, will ignite your autumn with spectacular shades of reds, yellows, and oranges! With persistent foliage that reddens slowly, you can enjoy watching the fall hues for weeks and admire its foliage's slow transition from green to cranberry red. Don't skip your opportunity to appreciate up-close the multi-colored leaves with deeply hued veining.
When you plant these strong shrubs in groups, you can expect a profusion of dark berries. They will need to cross-pollinate with the species Viburnum dentatum, or another dentatum selection that blooms a the same time, like Blue Muffin or Autumn Jazz.
One of the best features of this attractive, upright shrub with gentle arching branches is its tenacity. Many gardeners appreciate this healthy, hardy, and carefree shrub as a screen or background planting to their garden bed. Backdrop shrubs provide privacy while also hiding eyesores. Create garden rooms and seclusion with these tall and wide shrubs!
Chicago Lustre Arrowwood Viburnum is a practical and striking choice as an informal hedge. It's also an ideal place for birds to nest and butterflies to gather, so add a few to your wildlife areas and your local critters will find them in no time. Groupings and shelterbelt rows block wind, noise, and prying eyes, while offering pollinators and birds food and nesting sites.
Plant Viburnum shrubs in full sun and partial shade for the most flowers and the most fruit! Once established, the Chicago Lustre® Arrowwood Viburnum is drought and heat resistant. This adaptable bush prefers almost any kind of well-drained soil and moderate regular moisture. This shrub enjoys renewal pruning every three years. Snip away old growth and you will be gifted with healthy flowers on the remaining stems. Only Prune stems after flowering.
