Rusty Black Haw - Knowing Your Natives

Rusty Black Haw Viburnum

Rusty Black Haw, a plant from Eastern to Central Texas, can be found primarily in outlying wooded areas and streams. It tends to grow differently depending on the environment. Rusty Black Haw can become a shrub averaging about 10 feet or even a tiny 30-foot tree. Though the plant tends to increase in brush areas, it is most visually appealing when growing entirely in the sun. When it blooms, it has glossy bright green leave and clusters of flowers. These flowers are white in the spring, but in the fall, they grow a blue fruit. The leaves also change to a pink or purple shade in the fall. When growing in a more shaded, moist area, Rusty Black Haw tends to be just a single tree with maybe a few growing in the near field. A city with less rainfall can be found in groves of up to about 100 plants. Tn Nursery sells thousands of these shrubs for wetland mitigation plantings.
