K – Nannyberry Viburnum
Native: Nannyberry is a large, upright, multi-stemmed, suckering, deciduous shrub, but may also be grown as a small, single trunk tree which may reach a height of 28′. The prolific flowering gives way to abundant blue-back, berry-like fruits that are highly attractive to birds. Cardinals, Eastern Bluebirds, Robins and Cedar Waxwings are just a few of the birds that will visit viburnums. The foliage is essential food for many butterflies and moths, including the spectacular cecropia moth and the day-flying hummingbird clearwing moth.Variable fall color ranges from drab greenish-yellow to reddish-purple. Fruits are edible and may be eaten off the bush when ripe or used in jams and jellies.
