Blackhaw viburnum is a large shrub with an upright form and rounded shape, making this native shrub attractive when planted individually or grouped for a tall hedge or screen. Flat topped white flower clusters bloom in spring, giving way to yellow berries that turn blue-black. Generally multi-stemmed, Blackhaw has dark green, finely toothed foliage that turns red in autumn. Viburnum prunifolium offers excellent support for birds and pollinators, serving as host plants to numerous butterflies and moths. Viburnums flower profusely whether or not pollination occurs. However, poor fruiting will happen if there is only one Viburnum available.
