The Rusty Blackhaw Viburnum, scientifically known as Viburnum rufidulum, is a stunning deciduous shrub native to the southeastern United States. It’s prized for its attractive foliage, delicate white flowers, and vibrant berries, making it a sought-after addition to landscapes and gardens.

Typical Uses

These versatile shrubs are commonly used as ornamental focal points in gardens, as privacy hedges, or as part of wildlife-friendly landscapes. They attract birds with their berries and offer visual interest throughout the seasons.


Establishment and Care Instructions

To establish a Rusty Blackhaw Viburnum, plant it in well-draining soil with partial to full sun exposure. Ensure adequate spacing for mature growth, typically around 6-12 feet in height and spread. Regular watering, especially during the first growing season, is essential to help the plant establish deep roots.

Pruning can be done in late winter or early spring to maintain shape and remove dead or damaged branches. Applying a layer of mulch around the base helps retain moisture and regulate soil temperature.


Special Features and Usage

One of the unique features of the Rusty Blackhaw Viburnum is its multi-season interest. In spring, it showcases clusters of fragrant white flowers that attract pollinators. In summer, it displays glossy green leaves, and by fall, the foliage turns stunning shades of red and purple. It caps off the season by producing clusters of dark blue-black berries that persist into winter, providing food for birds.
