Up for sale is one pack of 10 Arrowwood Viburnum (Viburnum dentatum 'Synnestvedt') seeds. For zones 3-9 Arrowwood Viburnum is sold under various brand names such as Chicago Lustre and create a large 10 foot shrub that flowers intensly in early spring. By the end of spring these blooms fade and are replaced by purple berries that attract birds and other wildlife. These seeds were harvested in 2020 but will require cold stratification to before sowing if planting in spring or starting early in pots.

We offer flat rate combined shipping on all orders, no limit on the amount or type of seed packets.

Seeds require 60 days of cold treatment before sowing. If you live in zones 6 and below you can direct seed these in fall and they will sprout in spring. To cold treat put the seeds in a baggie with 1/2 cup of sand and add a couple of table spoons of water. Place this baggie in your refrigerator (not freezer) for 60 days checking every few weeks to make sure the sand has not dried out. Once your seeds are cold treated you can aid germination by soaking just the seeds for 8 hours and then removing any pulp from the seed before sowing.

When we start shrubs early we sow them in a 4" pot and add enough water to our soil so it is moist but not soaking wet. We then put a clear baggie over the top of the pot which is secured with a rubber band to create a green house effect. Here in zone 7 we then place this pot inside our house in a window that gets sun at least 8 hours per day. Don't add more water unless the clear plastic no longer fogs up. Once the seed germinates and is 2" tall you can remove the plastic baggie. In spring acclimate your seedling by placing in in direct sunlight for a couple of hours per day for about one week. As with most shrub seeds these have a lower germination rate of about 50%.
