Positive ViburnumValley On Nov 25, 2007, ViburnumValley from Scott County, KY (Zone 5b) wrote:

Deam viburnum is among the 25 or more different clones and varieties of arrowwood viburnum that I am growing here in central KY. It has extremely glossy and substantial foliage, and seems to grow naturally denser than the typical Viburnum dentatum species.

The emergent flower buds start off pinkish purple in color (rather than the usual greenish white) and that separates it from all the other clones and varieties EXCEPT Northern Burgundy.

Deam viburnum flowers heavily (midseason for arrowwoods) and sets heavy crops of fruit. This is assisted by plenty of cross-pollination opportunities here. Make sure you plant more than one type of arrowwood to ensure the same success.

I have had the illustrated plants in the ground three years; fall color has been a range of yellow/orange/red so far.
