Glitters & Glows® Arrowwood Viburnums

Better together! You don’t have to worry whether you’re buying the right pollinator for your arrowwood viburnum, because you’re buying two compatible plants in one pot. You’ll get All That Glitters and All That Glows viburnums together so you’re guaranteed to get beautiful blue berries in your garden no matter what. These are smaller than other Viburnum dentatum, so they can be tucked neatly into any spot you could imagine. At the front of the border, in a low hedge next to your driveway, or flanking your front porch steps. When they’re not in flower or covered in bunches of berries, you’ll notice their shiny leaves catch the light beautifully. It makes a great companion to other shrubs with interesting foliage and other native plants.

Plant Care

Light: Thrives in full to part sun. It needs at least four hours of direct sun to set flowers, which then turn into fruit.

Soil: Prefers moist soil that drains easily. Any period of extended sogginess will not be tolerated. It can also thrive in clay, alkaline soils.

Water: Average water needs.

Fertilizing: Not necessary, but if desired apply a granular fertilizer formulated for flowering shrubs in the late winter/early spring.

Pruning: It’s best to avoid pruning altogether. Any pruning will affect either flowering or berry setting, because it blooms on old wood and its berries develop from the summer flowers. Selective pruning to remove rubbing branches can be done in the late wintertime. Dead or damaged wood can be removed at any time of the year, just be sure to cut back to a set of leaves.

Other: As a native plant, it benefits wildlife and pollinators. Don’t be surprised to see caterpillars and moth larvae munching on the leaves; this is normal, natural, and exciting!
