Positive ViburnumValley On Nov 19, 2006, ViburnumValley from Scott County, KY (Zone 5b) wrote:

Crimson Tide is one of the finer arrowwoods of the Klehm introductions that I have grown. It is a vigorous large shrub (10'+) that blooms earliest of the many arrowwoods here, and these flowers are presented against a backdrop of thick dark glossy foliage. It sets a heavy fruit crop; ample cross-pollination from other arrowwood clones aids in this ornamental feature. Fall color is quite good, with dark reds and purples coming late in the arrowwood season.
