Arrowwood Viburnum, known as Viburnum dentatum, is a deciduous shrub native to eastern North America. It's an upright, rounded, multi-stemmed shrub that typically grows 6-10 feet tall and wide, but may reach up to 15 feet in optimum conditions. This plant is known for its non-fragrant white flowers in flat-topped corymbs, appearing in late spring. These flowers give way to blue-black, berry-like drupes, which are attractive to birds and wildlife. The leaves are ovate, toothed, glossy dark green, and can turn to shades of orange and red in the fall.

Arrowwood Viburnum thrives in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils, and prefers full sun to part shade. It is adaptable to a range of soil types, including clay soil, and has some drought tolerance once established. It's not highly ornamental, but is valued for its winter hardiness, vigor, and reliability. This shrub is often used in borders, tall hedges, screens, or as a background for native plantings. Native Americans reportedly used the straight stems of this species for arrow shafts, hence the common name.

Cold Hardiness Zone: 3-4
Seed Source: PA, USA (Zone 5b - 7a)
Stratification: 6 months warm followed by 2 - 3 months cold
Germinating: Viburnum species require a warm/moist stratification period during which the roots emerge, followed by a cold/moist period after which the shoots grow. It's crucial to provide both stratification periods to ensure successful germination of the seeds.
