Nannyberry Seedlings - Viburnum lentago
The Nannyberry is a large, illustrious shrub that can grow up to 15-20 feet in size. There is a year-round interest for the Nannyberry, as it produces an edible berry-like fruit that is blue to black during full maturity, which is typical during the autumn season. The shrub sprouts white, creamy-like flowers and polished green leaves. It is known to attract birds, which make for great pest-control for your garden. They also attract butterflies, which is good for keeping them from eating your other plants. They are also fairly deer resistant. The Nannyberry is perfect for borders, backgrounds, and screens.
The Nannyberry Seedling is a shrub that provides interest throughout the year. It gives off gorgeous white flowers in the Spring, green leaves in the Summer, burgundy in the Fall, and dark blue berries in the Winter. The berries are edible and are commonly made into delicious jellies and jams. The leaves are long and oval shaped with wavy edges and a winged leafstalk. The top of the leaves is a glossy green, and the underside is lighter in color; these leaves turn a beautiful burgundy in the Fall. The bark on the Nannyberry Seedling is dark-brown with a block-like appearance. Nannyberry spreads by root and forms colonies that can help create privacy or a hedgerow. The Nannyberry can also be kept as a small tree. Nannyberry Seedlings will mature into a beautiful shrub. These shrubs are native to the Midwestern and Northeastern part of the United States. These plants are sometimes considered to be a significant shrub or a small tree. They are also called the sweet viburnum or sheepberry. They are quite easy to grow because they are adaptable to most types of soil as long as moisture is provided and proper drainage available.
