Open your plants and inspect the same day received. We offer 3 days to report any problems with your order. Bare root plants need to be planted within 2-3 days of receipt unless weather prohibits.

A viburnum has over 150 different species that range from a two-foot shrub to a 30-foot tree.
All species of the shrub or tree have fragrant flowers that make a nice addition to your garden.
The Arrowwood Viburnum is a shrub with white clusters of flowers that bloom in spring or early summer and dark-bluish berries in early fall.
Dark green leaves in the summer that change to yellow or red in the fall gibe this shrub a fantastic look all year round.
The shrub is home to birds and bees and a great bush for butterflies and moths.
The shrub grows 6’ to 15’ high quickly and is somewhat irregular and rounded.
The bush likes well-drained soils that are acidic, alkaline, loamy, moist, or rich sandy and sandy loams. The shrub likes at least 6 hours of full sun with just a bit of shade the other times of the day. Arrowwood Viburnum does well in USDA Zone 3-9, which means you can find the Arrowwood Viburnum anywhere in the U.S.
The arrowwood viburnum is native to New Brunswick, Canada to Minnesota, and south to Georgia. The name comes from Native Americans using the strong branches or shoots from the roots as shafts for their arrows.
When planting the arrowwood viburnum, dig a hole twice as wide as the root system, but not too deep. It is not recommended using straight topsoil or compost as a backfill; it is best to use the existing soil in your garden. After planting your viburnum, make sure it is well watered for the first two weeks. After that, the viburnum will tolerate being watered at the same time and amount as your other garden plants.
The Arrowwood Viburnum needs little pruning, but if you want to control the growth, prune each year to maintain the shrub's shape. Lightly prune your viburnum throughout the year, but major pruning should be done in late winter or early spring.
