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

Indian Summer arrowwood is a shrub from the Klehm stable of introductions. This large shrub has performed very well in central KY, and has some characteristics which separate it from the other great plants coming out of northern IL.

Indian Summer has a slightly lighter green foliage color in the summer which contrasts nicely with the darker greens of most of the other arrowwoods seen in PlantFiles. It flowers and fruits well, like most of the other clones. It is a star in fall color -- it is the first to turn here, and it blazes in brilliant reds with just the slightest hint of underlying orange. Outstanding!
