Rusty Blackhaw – Viburnum rufidulum

Large shrub or small tree with short trunk; spreading, irregular crown; many small white flowers; leaves covered with rust-colored hairs beneath; and small blue fruit.

Rusty Blackhaw is distinguished from more northern Blackhaw primarily by the reddish-brown hairs on foliage and other parts, as well as by the slightly larger leaves and paler blue fruit. The Latin species name, meaning “reddish” also refers to the hairs.
