Looking for a versatile and resilient shrub for your garden? Look no further than Viburnum dentatum, also known as southern arrowwood or arrowwood viburnum. This small shrub is native to the Eastern United States and Canada, thriving in a wide range of climates from Maine to Northern Florida and Eastern Texas.

One of the standout features of Viburnum dentatum is its stunning flowers. These white or pale-yellow flowers bloom in flat-topped clusters, adding a touch of elegance to your garden. After flowering, the shrub produces small fruits that are about 1/4" in size. These berries can be black or sometimes an attractive blue, adding a pop of color to your landscape.

Not only is Viburnum dentatum beautiful, but it is also highly adaptable. It can tolerate both sun and part shade, making it suitable for a variety of garden settings. This shrub is highly resilient and can withstand heat, drought, and high pH levels. It is particularly well-suited for the U.S. Midwest, thriving in the sometimes challenging climate of this region.

In terms of appearance, Viburnum dentatum has a dense and rounded habit. It may be a bit rougher than some other viburnum species, but it is also tougher in nature. Its simple leaves are opposite in arrangement, and they turn from yellow to red in the late fall, creating a spectacular display of colors.

Viburnum dentatum attracts a variety of wildlife to your garden. The fruits are a valuable food source for songbirds, making this shrub a haven for avian visitors. However, Viburnum dentatum is not without its challenges. Certain moth larvae, such as the unsated sallow or arrowwood sallow, can feed on the leaves. Additionally, the invasive viburnum leaf beetle, originally from Eurasia, can also consume this shrub.

If you are looking to add a touch of beauty and resilience to your garden, Viburnum dentatum is an excellent choice. Its adaptability and attractive features make it a standout addition to any landscape. Whether you are a gardening enthusiast or a beginner, this shrub is sure to bring joy and beauty to your outdoor space.
