Viburnum lentago – Nannyberry



Birds and other animals love the drupes on this adaptable Viburnum. Purple fall color can be an added bonus to this species, although the leaves fall early so it’s not a guarantee. While this Viburnum is adaptable to a wide range of pH, sunlight, and soil moisture levels, keep this plant in the sun in an airy area to lessen the impact of powdery mildew.
