Viburnum dentatum – Arrowwood Viburnum

Showy, off-white flowers and solid disease and pest resistance make this native Viburnum a great choice for the garden.


This suckering selection may need to be pruned to maintain its expansion, but Viburnum dentatum is a solid, low-maintenance selection otherwise. Viburnum leaf beatle is the primary pest that affects this mostly disease-resistant, pest-free plant. Showy beige-white flowers dot this Viburnum in the Spring. Native Americans used to use the wood on this plant to make arrows.
