Nannyberry - Viburnum lentago
A midwestern and eastern small tree (to 35 feet) with a range that extends into central Canada, Nannyberry is a species of a variety of habitats, including rocky hillsides and swampy sites. Fast-growing and short-lived, this is an attractive tree with clusters of white flowers, edible fruits, and warm autumn color. Sometimes shrublike, the tough branches are hairy when young and smooth as they mature. The deciduous leaves are rounded or sometimes broadened, up to 4 inches in length and pointed, with sharp teeth. The fruits are dark blue and eaten by large and small birds.
