One of the many native Viburnums, a useful landscaping shrub for screening or background in a native plant garden. A vigorous, multi stemming plant that has showy white, umbel-shaped blooms similar to Elderberry. A valuable plant for birds, attracting the Eastern Bluebird, butterflies, and native bees. It also feeds small mammals. It can do well in a variety of conditions, but occurs in the woodland edge of Eastern US forests most commonly. Berries are edible to humans, though not choice. Traditionally the stems were used to make arrows.
