Looking for an elegant and functional shrub or small tree for your landscape? Consider Viburnum obovatum, also known as Small-leaf Arrowwood or Walter's Viburnum. This small to medium-sized tree has a broadly spreading crown and can be used as an accent or specimen shrub, informal or formal hedge, or buffer planting. It is widely cultivated and has a moderate growth rate, typically reaching 10-20 feet in height in South Florida and up to 30 feet in Florida, with trunks up to 6 inches in diameter. Its dark green leaves are semi-deciduous, about 1/2-1 1/2 inches long, and provide a stunning contrast against its nearly black, furrowed bark. The Viburnum obovatum produces semi-showy white flowers in the winter-spring and red turning black drupe fruit, which serves as a significant source of food and cover for wildlife, particularly birds and other animals. This small viburnum can grow in nutrient poor but seasonally wet to moist, well-drained sandy soils with some organic content to thrive. Additionally, it requires full sun to light shade and moderate moisture, but it is tolerant of short periods of drought once established. So, if you're looking to enhance your landscape with an attractive, functional, and low-maintenance tree, Viburnum obovatum is an excellent choice.
