Viburnum cassinoides has many common names: Witherod Viburnum, Swamp
Viburnum, Appalachian Tea Viburnum, Swamp Blackhaw, False Paraguay Tea, and
Wild Raisin. A native, suckering shrub, it usually reaches 10 by 10 or taller in the wild.
Plants grown in full sun flower profusely with yellow-stemmed white flowers. And, it
grows from granite mountaintops to the edges of streams in moist, acid soil in full sun
and shade (p. 55). Introduced 1761.
Viburnum dentatum (Arrowwood Viburnum) is one of the most durable viburnums
for general landscape use (p. 63); it is impervious to extremes of climate and soils. It
grows 6-8 with a dense, multi-stemmed habit, not very flagrant color in the Fall and
makes a good hedge or screen.
In his Manual (pp. 1065-6), Dirr lists Viburnum rafinesquianum as a closely related
species to V. dentatum which he calls polymorphic. In his Viburnums book, he lists
V.rafinesquianum separately as the Raninesque Viburnum, or the Down Arrowwood
Viburnum. He still labels it an eastern United States native
Viburnum lentago (Nannyberry Viburnum) is a woodland or woodland edge species;
it is tall and leggy; it grows about 12 high and wide. It was introduced in 1761, and is
seldom grown in Zone 7.
Viburnum nudum (Winterthur Viburnum) is still underutilized in gardens in spite
of the popularity of such cultivars as Winterthur, Earth Shade, Count Pulaski, and
Pink Beauty—apparently only the first two are commercially available. It does best at
the edge of the woods, but its colors are more vivid in full sun.
