Positive ViburnumValley On Nov 18, 2006, ViburnumValley from Scott County, KY (Zone 5b) wrote:

I am growing about 25 clones of arrowwood here in central KY. This plant is one of only two or three to still be holding quantities of fruit in mid-November 2006. Most all clones are quickly stripped of fruit in late summer by mockingbirds and cardinals as the fruit ripens.

Fireworks™ arrowwood is not particularly remarkable in any other respect. 2006 is the heaviest fruiting year I've had on this plant, but no more than most other arrowwoods present here. Fireworks™ is a selection from the Lake Erie Series introduced by Lake County Nursery in northern Ohio. It should have another arrowwood that overlaps in bloom time so that it cross-pollinates adequately.
