Black Haw Viburnum Description

Blackhaw Viburnum: Viburnum prunifolium is a Multi-Stemmed Flowering Deciduous

Black Haw Viburnum is a deciduous, multi-stemmed flowering shrub that grows irregularly round. The Blackhaw Viburnum is native to North America and most commonly found from Connecticut east to western Kansas. Blackhaw Viburnum's also located south of Alabama and in some parts of Texas.

The Blackhaw Viburnum is most often planted in pleasure gardens. Blackhaw Viburnum grows as a multi-stemmed shrub or small tree. With a twiggy habit, Blackhaw Viburnum is often considered an excellent hedge plant and is very easy to transplant due to its robust design. Blackhaw Viburnum is usually planted because of its profusion of flowers and is an easy way to add color and interest to a landscape.

Blackhaw Viburnum can Withstand Droughts

Blackhaw Viburnum Bush - Viburnum prunifolium - consists of alluring flower clusters on a vast, multi-stemmed deciduous shrub; bright berries and appealing fall color distinguish them from the various other plants. It is for you to decide the appearance of your Blackhaw Viburnum Bush, whether you want to decorate your garden with a broad and robust suckering shrub or whether you want your bush to grow into a single-trunked tree.

Both options would lead you to an image of rigid and tight, extending branches that create an uneven crown towards the top. Hence, consider Blackhaw Viburnum Bush the royalty in the plant kingdom.

The attractive foliage of elliptical, glossy dark green leaves (about 1 to 3 inches long) turns red and purple in the autumn. Its flowers in flat-topped creamy white clusters are suspended beautifully above the foliage during spring. These white flowers are a favorite among butterflies, bees, and other pollinators because of their abundance of nectar.

These flowers are then replaced by wonderful pink-rose berries formed in thick clusters and turn blue-black in the autumn. They frequently survive throughout the winter and are a popular food source for many birds and other animals.

The fruits are delectable and may be enjoyed straight out of the shrub or can be utilized to produce jams and preserves, which are just as wonderful. It is also adaptable to a wide range of soil types, provided that they have adequate water drainage.

It grows well in loamy, although it can also thrive in sandy or clay soil. Furthermore, it favors a neutral soil pH, although it can withstand mildly acidic or somewhat alkaline soils.

Blackhaw Viburnum Bush requires little maintenance since it can thrive in a wide range of temperatures and environments. Finding a location with adequate soil permeability and sunshine is essential to make the maintenance of your plant easy-breezy.

When planting, consider the shrub's mature size to ensure it has appropriate room to expand. It is ideal for home gardeners since it is relatively resilient and seldom suffers from significant pests or diseases due to its adaptability to the natural environment. Moreover, it also has a high level of resistance to pollutants.

Even the water requirements of this plant are modest. All you have to do is maintain consistent moisture (not sogginess) in the soil around young shrubs while they form their root systems. Mature Blackhaw Viburnum bushes have considerable drought resistance and typically only need hydration for an extended time without rain or scorching weather.

    The trees arrived in good condition. I placed the order in May. Figured I would have to call and fight to get what I had ordered. But no! I was notified and my order was shipped promptly. For once something went like it was supposed to. Thank you.
