A Native with Fall Color to Spare

Fall color in the shade is hard to come by. Often plants need full sun to bring out their strongest fall color. Not so with the Forest Rouge Blackhaw Viburnum, (Viburnum prunifolium 'McKRouge'). This hardy native bush will happily show in a shady corner of your garden as well as in a sunny spot.  

The leaves start out a beautiful yellow-green in the spring and age to a dark shiny green. Clusters of creamy-white flowers appear, followed by bluish-black berries that persist through fall until winter. As if this weren’t enough to recommend it for your garden, this viburnum has young stems that come out a dark red and are a lovely contrast to the emerging yellow-green foliage.  

The fall color starts early on plants that are in full sun, later on plants in the shade, but they will hold the deep maroon color late into the season.  

This great selection was first introduced by Dan Moore at Mckay Nursery in Wisconsin, so you know it comes from good stock.

Use Forest Rouge Blackhaw for foundation plantings or as a single specimen plant. It also works really well for wildlife or naturalizing areas.

It will excel in shade or full sun and prefers sandy loam to some clay, but does best on well-drained sites with better than average moisture.

Don’t wait for one of these native beauties! Order yours today.

* Outstanding fall color in sun or shade
* Berries for wildlife
