Noteworthy Characteristics
Viburnum prunifolium, commonly called black haw, is usually grown as a large, upright, multi-stemmed, 
deciduous shrub with an irregular crown, but it also may be grown as a small, single trunk tree. As a shrub,
 it typically grows 12-15' tall with a spread of 6-12', but as a tree may reach a height of 30'. A native plant which 
commonly occurs in moist woods, thickets and on streambanks throughout the State. Non-fragrant white flowers in 
flat-topped cymes (to 4.5" diameter) appear in spring. Flowers give way in autumn to blue-black, berry-like drupes 
which often persist into winter and are quite attractive to birds and wildlife. Ovate, finely toothed, glossy dark green leaves (to 4" long) 
turn attractive shades of red and purple in fall. Fruits are edible and may be eaten off the bush when ripe or used in jams and preserves.
Genus name comes from the Latin name of a species plant.
Specific epithet means with leaves like Prunus.
Common name refers to the purported similarity of this plant to hawthorns (sometimes commonly called red haws), 
though hawthorns are in a different family.
No serious insect or disease problems.
