Blue Blaze arrowwood is a fine compact viburnum from the Lake Erie series of viburnums introduced by Lake County Nursery in Ohio. It is a much slower grower than most of the other 20+ arrowwoods that I grow here in KY. It has dark green lustrous foliage; flowers copiously; and sets dense heads of fruit.

Blue Blaze would be an excellent selection for individuals who want to grow arrowwood, but don't have the room for the standard versions which reach 8-10' tall and wide.
