Nannyberry Viburnum, viburnum lentago, is a hardy, upright growing shrub with glossy green foliage that turns red-purple in fall. The creamy white flat-topped flower clusters mature into small blue-black fruit, which provide winter food for birds. Due to its mild suckering, it becomes more open at maturity, with arching branches. Nannyberry is a large tree-like "leggy" native shrub that can be pruned into a small tree form. This shrub is good for farmstead windbreaks or a screen plant with year-round interest. It prefers rich loam to clay loam soil with ample moisture. This shrub does well in either full sun or shade and is one of the more tolerant woody plants in shady sites. It grows 20 feet tall and 6-10 or more feet wide. Pruning is required to remove suckers if a tree form is desired. Viburnum tend to be multi-season plants with ornamental value throughout a large part of the season.
Scientific Name : Viburnum lentago
