Viburnum dentatum

Viburnum dentatum 'Dwarf Form'

A selection made from a seedling block of V. dentatum.  Original plant was 5' tall while others in the block were 8'.  This plant later went on to be known as V. dentatum 'Blue Muffin'.  Branches are finer textured than the species as well as leaf size.  Very heavily flowering in June with equally heavy set of blue-black fruit with pollinator in close proximity.  Fall color is reddish-purple.

USDA Hardiness Zone:


Growing and Maintenance Tips

As with all cultivars and varieties of V. dentatum, to insure adequate pollination and fruit set, the planting of another dentatum cultivar or seedling is recommended.  Keep in mind that the pollinator plant must bloom during the same time as the plant you want to pollinate.  Please contact us for recommended companion plants.
