Blackhaw Viburnum

The Price Nurseries Official Tree of the Month for September is one of our favorite trees here at Price Nurseries for a number of reasons.  The Blackhaw Viburnum is a native tree that is extremely adaptable to different soil types and conditions and will grow in partial shade to full sun.  As you can see in the picture, it is well known for its fabulous fall color and it has fruit that starts to show up this time of year which is edible and was used in preserves back in colonial times.  It is disease and insect resistant which is always a big plus.  The flowers are borne in May and are a creamy white.  It reaches a height of 15-20' with nearly as much width.  They can be pruned into interesting multiple-stem trees or can be left to be large shrubs that are good for screening.  Blackhaws are just a GREAT native plant, well-known for their interesting form and outstanding fall color.  The birds will thank you for planting one of these beauties, so do them a favor and plant one today! 15% off through the month of September.
