Viburnum, Blackhaw--Coming Soon
Pollinator value: Very High.
Attracts native bees, honey bees, bumble bees, butterflies, and more.
This shapely shrub or small tree produces enchanting white flower clusters in May and June followed by edible berries and dark green foliage that becomes reddish-purple in fall.
The Blackhaw tolerates drought and does well in urban conditions. Its resistance to disease makes it a good substitute for the White Flowering Dogwood. Note that viburnums will set fruit better if there are two or more for pollination.
