Viburnum dentatum Blue Muffin® (Arrowwood Viburnum) is a compact, upright, deciduous shrub of rounded habit with a foliage of shiny green leaves, that turn shades of purple-red and gold in fall. In early to mid-summer, the plant is smothered with a profusion of creamy-white flowers, followed by remarkably intense azure-blue berries in late summer and fall. Persisting well into winter, they add interest to the late season landscape, and attract songbirds to the garden.

Blue Muffin requires another viburnum for pollination before its flowers produce fruit.
