Native Hedge Feeds Wildlife

Nannyberry Viburnum, Viburnum lentago, is a native shrubby tree. It is a hardy upright growing shrub with glossy green foliage that turns red-purple in fall. 

The creamy white flat-topped flower clusters in spring mature into small blue-black fruit. They provide winter food for birds and wildlife.

Nannyberry is a large native shrub that will mature to 20' and 10' wide. It can be used as a large shrub or pruned into a small tree.

The tendency for this shrub to sucker lends itself to a more open and leggy form, which can be used for windbreaks, hedges, or as a screen.

It prefers full to part sun and is one of the more tolerant woody plants in shady sites.

Nannyberry prefers loam soil with ample moisture.

Pruning is required to remove suckers if a tree form is desired.

Viburnum tends to be multi-season plant with ornamental value throughout  the season.
