Tips for Homeowners:
Prune as needed after flowering (leave flowers to allow for berries in the fall). This shrub does have a tendency to send up new shoots and spread. Another Arrowwood variety in the near vicinity will help to cross pollinate and will increase berry production.

Interesting Notes about Arrowwood Viburnum:
Versitile and durable only partially describe this shrub because it can withstand very tough conditions. It can handle heavy soils, and drastic changes in the weather and looks good doing it. The white flowers in spring are followed by clusters of blue fruit that are not edible for humans, but are certainly a delicacy for birds.
