Indian Arrowood Viburnum - Viburnum Dentatum

The name comes from Native Americans using the strong shoots for the shaft of their arrows. This is a plant that is native from Minnesota to the south of Georgia. Nowadays, it's known for attracting Red Admirals and Question Mark butterflies; in the spring it is larval plant food for the Azure butterfly and hummingbird moths.

It is a shrub that can take full sunlight or partial shade, but it does prefer a minimum of 4 hours of direct sunlight. The Shrub grows around medium height with increases of 13 to 24 inches per year. It will survive in an array of soil types including alkaline, moist, fertile, sandy, acidic, well-drained and clay soils.

The Indian Arrowwood Viburnum is a shrub that is marked by many different looks throughout the year. They have creamy white flowers that cluster or flat-top in 2 to 4 inches circular diameters; blooming from May to early June. After the flowers disappear, it produces fruit that is enjoyed by birds. The fruit will be a blue-black in appearance, and each fruit is about a quarter of an inch in diameter. During the summer they have either shiny or flat dark green leaves which are shaped as shallow hearts with prominent veins that the blade puckers up in between. While in the autumn, color is highly dependent on the plant itself. Some plants will turn yellow, but others will become red to a reddish purple in their leaves. Color development happens late in the fall.

It is used in many different types of landscapes because of its supreme durability. The uses of Indian Arrowwood Viburnum are anything from parking lots to borders or screens for fences. Since it provides a nice effect to the landscape and attracts birds and butterflies many are planted in groups that can be reproduced by either seed or by cuttings.
