maple-leaf viburnum, Viburnum acerifolium

Maple-leaf viburnum or arrow-wood can be six or seven feet tall, but is more often a more modest size - about waist high. It can be found in forest understory, and sometimes in gardens. The leaves have a little more interest than the ordinary oval shapes of most of its relatives. The black berries attract birds and other wildlife. Maple-leaf grows in AL, AR, CT, DE, FL, GA, IL, IN, KY, LA, MA, MD, ME, MI, MS, NC, NH, NJ, NY OH, PA, RI, SC, TN, TX, VA, VT, WI, WV, NB, ON, and QC. Lenawee Co MI, 6/1/13.
