Nannyberry – Multi-Stemmed, Suckering Deciduous Shrub

Why Nannyberry (Viburnum Lentago)?

Nannyberry, also known as Viburnum lentago, is a multi-stemmed, upright, suckering, deciduous shrub that typically grows tall; however, it may also be cultivated as a small tree with a single trunk. Beautiful white flowers in flat-topped cymes appear in spring, but drupes that resemble berries and blue-black replace these blooms in the fall—quite attractive to birds and wildlife.

Viburnums benefit birds and other pollinators and are also crucial as host plants for various butterflies and moths. Surprisingly, they also do not have any serious insect or disease problems.

Since "perfect" flowers include male and female organs, they might reproduce independently; however, additional pollination (two or three bushes) is suggested for cross-pollination to ensure successful fruit development.

The fruits may be consumed directly off the plant or processed into preserves such as jams and jellies. The juice extracted from the nannyberry benefits those with digestive and menstruation issues.

Pollination of Nannyberry Bush (Viburnum lentago):

Nannyberry flowers are hermaphroditic, containing both male and female reproductive parts. The flowers are insect-pollinated and attract bees and other pollinators.

Nannyberry is a versatile shrub/tree, suitable for hedges, screens, and naturalized areas. Its attractive foliage, flowers, and fruits make it a desirable addition to gardens and landscapes, where it can provide both ornamental value and ecological benefits.

It is generally recommended to wait to fertilize a bare root plant until it has been established in the ground and is actively growing. This can vary depending on the type of plant and the growing conditions, but it is generally best to wait at least a few weeks to a few months after planting.

During the first year, you should focus on providing the plant with the right amount of water, sunlight and soil to help it become established. Once the plant has become established and is actively growing, you can begin to fertilize it.

You can use a balanced, all-purpose fertilizer or one that is specifically formulated for the type of plant you have. Be sure to follow the instructions on the fertilizer package and apply it at the recommended rate.

It is also important to note that over-fertilizing can be harmful to plants, so it's always best to error on the side of caution and start with a lower amount of fertilizer and increase as needed.
