Viburnum prunifolium ‘Dark Tower’ (blackhaw viburnum)

Viburnum prunifolium ‘Dark Tower’

According to Klyn Nursery, “Viburnum prunifolium Dark Tower™ is a truly unique blackhaw viburnum with thick dark green glossy foliage covering the pyramidal form of this small, under the wire tree. It readily forms a central leader with stout branches and uniform pyramidal habit. Clusters of showy white flowers appear in May, followed in autumn by clusters of dark blue fruits fading to black, held against a background of glistening orange to scarlet foliage. The tree makes a specimen suitable for small landscapes and parks or as an under the wire street tree. Selected as a seedling from a native species.”
