Blackhaw viburnum is an extremely diverse shrub that can be pruned into tree form. Spring flowers are in large white cymes and will attract many pollinators. Following the beautiful blooms are purple – black berries that are enjoyed by many songbirds and people. As with many plants they will set more fruit with more than one plant for pollination. During the growing season the leaves are ovate and glossy then turn to brilliant reds and purples in the fall creating multi seasonal interest, a great replacement for the invasive Burning Bush (Euonymus alatus). This is a high-value wildlife plant hosting 90 different species of moths and butterflies (NWF) and provides nesting sites. Blackhaw is considerably hardy, once established it is tolerant of drought, heavy clay soil, air pollution and Black Walnut. Black Walnut is known to emit juglone which can inhibit other plant growth.
