The Arrowwood Viburnum is a well-known shrub that is also known as the Southern Arrowwood.
The plant has been found from the Midwest and the Northeast to the Southeastern state of Georgia where it grows in full sun and tolerates a range of different soils and temperature ranges.
The name of the shrub is thought to originate from the history of the shrub in North America and its use by Native American tribes in their cultures. The tribes of the East Coast and eastern third of the U.S. are thought to have used the long-stemmed branches as arrows, giving the multi-stemmed shrub its name, Arrowwood.
One of the main reasons for the popularity of the Arrowwood Viburnum is its ability to provide visual interest from Spring through the Fall.
The shrub blooms early in Spring with its white flowers visible from May to June.
As the summer wears on, the Southern Arrowwood produces small fruits and a deep blue shade turning black as they grow. By Fall, the leaves of the Arrowwood Viburnum turn a deep red that can be stunning when a number of these trees are placed together to form a decorative hedge.
