Viburnum prunifolium

Viburnum prunifolium
black haw

Common name black haw
Family adoxaceae
Life cycle shrub/tree
Flowers white
Size to 20'

Lightly serrated leaves in an unassuming shade of mid-green, with creamy white flowers in mid-spring. I started ours from seed – it took them four or five years to come into bloom.

Apple-green developing fruit in early August

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
