Viburnum dentatum 'Blue Blaze™'

An unusual form for the species.  This arrowwood has a dense, low mounding habit, growing wider than it does tall (5'x7').  Unusually attractive gunmetal green foliage has a distinctive deep wine frost underside.  Flowers are that of the species with a prolific crop of majestic blue berries in late summer.  Fall foliage is a lustrous reddish-purple.  A Lake County Nursery introduction.
