An upright, rounded deciduous shrub, the Arrowwood Viburnum Dentatum typically matures between 6 and 10 feet tall and roughly the same width, which makes it an ideal plant for hedging. Under optimum growing conditions, the shrub can reach a height of 15 feet, so it could potentially be pruned into an effective privacy screen as well.
Viburnum dentatum Details
In late spring, the Arrowwood Viburnum dentatum produces non-fragrant white flowers, which give way to blue-black, berry-like drupes which attract birds and other wildlife. The Arrowwood Viburnum has ovate glossy dark green leaves with slightly serrated margins. Fall colors range from yellow to orange and red. The plant is native to North America and is widespread throughout many of the eastern states. The plant’s common name comes from the fact that Native Americans used the straight stems of the species for arrow shafts. Hedges like Cornelian cherry, Royal star magnolia, Bald cypress are other special ones to be explored. You can also checkout other hedge varieties.
