Black Haw

Viburnum prunifolium 12-15' x 8-12'

Rounded flowering shrub, reminiscent of a wild hawthorn or crabapple in form. Suckering habit easily creates a dense colony or hedge, but can also be pruned to a multi-stem specimen if desired.

Creamy white 2-4'' cymes bloom in early spring while leaves are opening, providing an early source of pollen for dozens of different pollinators.

Later in summer, ½" fruits turn from pink to dark bluish-black. The waxy-looking fruit hangs in clusters through the fall. Long used as a food source, eaten raw or put away in preserves.

Root and bark traditionally used for medicinal purposes as a nervine tonic and antispasmodic. Dark lustrous green leaves turn to purplish-bronze in fall.

Transplants easily and is very adaptable, moist to dry soil, sun or shade. Native to bogs and streams of eastern U.S. Z3. Maine Grown. (1-3' bare-root plants)
