The Q&A Archives: Arrowwood Viburnum

Question: I just purchased 10 Arrowwood Viburnum shrubs. I would like information on propagation and if they grow fast, and their requirements as to light and water. I have searched and can not find any information on them. Thanks for your help.

Answer: Arrowwood Viburnum (Viburnum dentatum) will grow 8'-15' in height and spread 6'-15' under ideal conditions. The plant is hardy from zones 2-8, providing dense growth with arching branches. The leaves are dark green in summer, turning yellow to glossy red to reddish purple in the fall. Small yellowish-white flowers appear in late May to early June. It's a durable plant, growing best in full sunshine in average, well-draining soils and regular watering during the summer months. You can propagate from seed (180-510 to germinate), or from softwood cuttings in early summer. Cuttings root readily in moist growing medium.
