  1. Diane

    There are at least 8 different varieties of Arrowwood Viburnum. Which one is this?

    http://www.hort.uconn.edu/plants/detail.php?pid=524

    Possible Varieties Include:
    ‘Christom’ (Blue Muffin™) – A new selection that may hold great promise, this is a true dwarf that grows densely to 4′ tall and wider. It blooms heavily with good set of deep blue fruit. It may be the best selection of this adaptable native for smaller gardens.

    ‘Emerald Lustre’ – This plant is a selection of Viburnum bracteatum, which is closely allied or identical to V. dentatum. Its most notable feature is the glossy dark green foliage and its performance in warmer zones from 6 south. The fruit are abundant and colored purple-black, while the fall foliage is yellow-bronze. It is probably best reserved for use in warmer coastal areas.

    ‘Moonglow’ – A selection out of Pennsylvania, this cultivar is notable for its larger leaves which are glossy dark green. The fruit appear slightly later than other selections and are a bit larger.

    ‘Morton’ (Northern Burgundy®) – This selection blooms in late June and produces a prolific crop of blue-black fruit. The fall color is burgundy and the plant grows a bit larger than other selections, to 12′ tall and wide.

    ‘Ralph Senior’ (Autumn Jazz®) – Selected for its excellent shape and form, this plant grows 10′ to 12′ tall and 8′ to 10′ wide. It has an upright, vase-like shape with fall color that is a mix of yellow, red and purple.

    ‘Patzam’ (Pathfinder™) – This is a new cultivar that grows upright to 6′ tall and 4′ wide. It has handsome foliage that is glossy dark green and serrated. It may be useful where a smaller plant is needed.

    ‘Perle Bleu’ – This new selection is well-named, for it features ample production of round, blue fruit. It may be useful in attracting bird life, plus this 10′-12′ tall shrub is attractive in its own right.

    ‘Synnestvedt’ (Chicago Lustre®) – Noted for its nice glossy, deep green foliage on an upright rounded shrub, this plant grows 8′ to 10′ tall and wide. The fall color is reddish purple and the selection blooms slightly later than the species. It is hardy to zone 5.

    To Diane: Those you listed are cultivars. This listing is very likely for the true native species. If you are planting a native garden, you want the plants without the cultivar names (in quotation marks).
