Blue Muffin® Arrowwood Viburnum

Viburnum dentatum 'Christom'

SKU
07425
Blue Muffin™ is a useful viburnum variety. More compact than other Arrowwood viburnum, it fits easily into the residential landscape. Clean white flowers make for a crisp contrast with the glossy green leaves in early to mid-summer. The remarkably intense blue fruit that inspired the Blue Muffin™ name appear in late summer and fall. The fruit add interest to the fall landscape, and attract songbirds to the garden. Berries are not edible.
