The Nannyberry is a beautiful shrub with white flowers and blue-black edible fruit. It grows as a small tree 10 to 15 feet high or a large shrub 8 feet high. The hardy planting zone is 3 through 8. The shrub thrives in sand, loam or clay soil with a pH level of 6 -7:5 and requires plenty of sunlight. Nannyberry is grown as a shrub border or landscape centrepiece.
As a beautiful, upright tree, the nannyberry is an extremely easy-to-grow shrub and thrives in a wide range of growing conditions. The nannyberry can grow in sand, loamy or clay soils. Although it prefers a soil pH level of between six to 7.5, the nannyberry can tolerate a more acidic soil as well. This hardy shrub can grow in both well-drained and poorly drained soils; it does well in both dry and moist conditions. The nannyberry tends to produce large thickets on prairie land but becomes small shrubs in forests. For homeowners, the nannyberry can be grown as a big, suckering shrub or as a single or multi-stemmed tree. Gardeners and home growers often use the nannyberry in their landscapes as a border or a hedge. As a tall barrier or screen, this durable shrub can mark the edge of the property or provide additional privacy for homeowners. It is well-suited for naturalizing areas. The nannyberry's ripe fruit can be used to make delicious jams and jellies for those who enjoy preserving their fruit. Left on the shrubs, these berries attract birds and other wildlife to the area. In the spring, the nannyberry grows glossy, dark green, wavy leaves from one-inch long and narrow buds. These mature to about three to four inches. During May and June, clusters of small flowers bloom from large buds that are also around three to four inches. And, in the autumn, blue-black berries appear with red stalks, offering a beautiful contrast against the yellow, orange and red foliage.
