What is a viburnum arrowwood?
This charming shrub, a North American native species, Viburnum dentatum, or Arrowwood Viburnum, is beloved by gardeners across most USDA planting zones. That's because it is so self-sufficient that it requires almost no help from a gardener.
Viburnum dentatum is a shrub TN Nursery recommends for any customer who requests a low-care shrub. Besides being relatively carefree, the gorgeous white blossoms bloom early in the season, adding welcome color to the garden when many other shrubs remain dormant.
Where to Use Viburnum dentatum in Your Landscape
Viburnum dentatum can reach a mature height of around ten feet. However, many gardeners choose to shape it to suit specific garden needs. For instance, if they want to grow it as a short hedge. Here are several ideas about how to put this naturally charming shrub to use in your yard:
●Mass plantings: Plant several Viburnum dentatum shrubs in mass plantings to hide an unsightly view or an eyesore.
●Mark off your property line or create a privacy shield away from prying eyes.
●Natural area: Enliven a natural area with this lovely shrub--let it grow wild to its full height.
●Urban garden: This plant is a sweet, no-care species, making it ideal for an urban setting, park, or playground.
●Plant Viburnum dentatum as a foundation planting around your home. Control its growth by pruning it after it blooms--this will help avoid covering the windows.
●Pollinator garden or butterfly garden: The nectar of the abundant white flowers will nourish the first bees, moths, butterflies, and dragonflies to visit your garden for the season.
●Shade garden: Viburnum dentatum is a lovely filler for a shady environment that needs something extra.
Viburnum dentatum Has So Much Natural Charm
Viburnum dentatum is rich in natural charm. In the early weeks of spring, the glorious, white-to-cream flowers are among the first bloomers. Each angelic blossom is petite, under a quarter-inch in width, and with five little petals that create a bell shape. Despite its diminutive size, it makes an immense impact as these tiny flowers join together in large, fluffy clusters.
The flowers fade away in a couple of short weeks, and the four-inch long, glossy, toothy-edged emerald leaves appear for the rest of the growing season. The foliage of this shrub is full and beautiful.
