Black Haw Viburnum (Viburnum prunifolium) is a deciduous flowering shrub clothed in snow-white fragrant flowers when in bloom. It is a multi-stemmed shrub with attractive horizontal branching and good fall color. Blackhaw Viburnum blooms 2-4" white flowers in spring and shortly after the blooms appear, the flowers transition to pink and purple berry-like drupes. The serrated bright green leaves turn an outstanding purple-red in the fall, giving this viburnum year-round interest. It is easy to care for and should be pruned after flowering to ensure new buds form for the next season. Its fragrant flowers and berries attract wildlife to your yard, but deer tend to look the other way.

How to Care for Blackhaw Viburnum

We suggest when planting your newly purchased Blackhaw Viburnum plants that you dig a hole twice as wide as the root system but not deeper. Depending on the quality of your existing soil you may need to add a locally sourced compost or topsoil to the back-fill soil. We do not recommend using straight topsoil or compost as a back-fill soil because more times than not these products will retain entirely to much moisture and will cause the root system to rot. Adding compost or topsoil will help the young feeder roots of Blackhaw Viburnum to spread through the loose, nutrient rich soil, much easier than if you used solely the existing soil which more times than not will be hard and compacted. The most common cause of plant death after transplanting is planting the new plant to deep. That is why we do not recommend planting in a hole any deeper than the soil line of the plant in the pot. A good rule is that you should still be able to see the soil the plant was grown in after back-filling the hole. Bio-tone starter fertilizer is a great starter fertilizer that provides plants with mycorrhizae fungus. It is a naturally occurring beneficial fungus that colonizes on the new growing roots of plants. It creates a barrier between the roots of the plant and fungus and pathogens that can cause root rot. We love this product and use it on all plants we install in our own gardens. Bio-tone is a gardeners best friend and can help guarantee your success.
