Nannyberry Viburnum is an upright, multi-stem shrub, very popular in the American landscape. It can grow from 12-16′ and beyond in optimal conditions, with a comparable spread. In late spring it has white flowers which give way to berries, attracting both butterflies and birds. The berries are edible and can be eaten right off the bush or made into jellies and jams. The name actually comes from the berries wild popularity among nanny goats. Overall, this is a very winter hardy, reliable, and low maintenance shrub. An interesting thing to note is it’s tolerance of air pollution, making it a good option in urban areas. They can be used as a tall hedge, screen, or background for a lovely native planting.
