Little Joe™ and Raspberry Tart™ would be my choices of what I suggested above. You may have difficulty finding those.

I would not have chosen BM as my foundational arrowwood either, but that's another story.

You might have to have a stand-in suitor this year so that you get cross-pollination for this flower/fruit season, while you prospect for a permanent plant. Parking a containerized viburnum in the neighborhood of your installed shrubs while their blooming will do the trick. Then make a gift of what you don't want to keep, or don't have room for.

Pre-pollinated at that - you'll be the hit of Father's Day/Fourth of July/International Viburnum Month...
