The flowers are pretty nifty too. Fluffy white clouds of flowers cover the plant offering food for the bees and other pollinators. I watched yesterday as a tiger swallowtail butterfly landed and helped itself to the nectar.
Even when not in bloom the glossy green foliage makes the Viburnum dentatum worth planting in the garden. It's common name is arrowood viburnum which comes from the fact that Native Americans used the suckering branches to make arrow shafts. This viburnum likes full sun but can tolerate part shade and thrives in zones 3-8.
Arrowood Viburnum Propagation
Arrowood viburnum suckers a lot and can be easily divided by removing the suckers. You can propagate this viburnum through cuttings from stem tips, greenwood, hardwood or layering. It's fairly easy to get a new plant started. You can also grow them from seed if you can beat the birds to the berries - good luck with that one!
