Summer and fall

When the weather starts to heat up, the black haw viburnum will lose its white flowers and take on beautiful green oval leaves that turn red in the fall. Dark blue fruit appears on the branches of the black haw as the summer comes to an end. The berries can be eaten and are often used for medicinal purposes.

The black haw mature height is 12-15 feet tall with an 8-10 foot spread. The rate of growth is rated as slow to medium but can grow 12-24 inches per year.
