Nannyberry Viburnum (Viburnum lentago) 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 vibrant white flowers which give way to berries, benefiting pollinators as well as many animals that feed on its fruit. 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 its 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. Nannyberry is a host plant for the Spring Azure butterfly, pictured above.
