Nannyberry Bush

Nannyberry Bush

Species: Viburnum lentago

History: Native along the southern edge of several provinces from Saskatchewan to New Brunswick and several northern states, nannyberries are popular among wildlife and have been used by some indigenous peoples for medicinal purposes. The appealing flowers, bright autumn foliage, and edible berries have made nannyberries popular as ornamental plants in parks and gardens.

Why We Grow It: This lovely native shrub bears sweet blue berries with a jammy texture that is good for fresh eating and making jams and jellies. Ornamentally, it is an attractive addition to the property while the blue berries are a popular food item for birds through the winter.

Shipping vs. Pick Up

CLICK HERE to see how shipping compares to pick up.

Shipping: Every year we ship thousands of trees across Canada (except BC due to CFIA regulations). We carefully bag roots in damp sawdust, then box them and send them out via courrier. CLICK HERE to see our shipping policy.

Pick-up: We also have thousands of trees picked up from our nursery each year. The pick-up options is free, though you must wait until you have been emailed a confirmation that your order is ready to pick up, which will have further information such as hours, locations, etc. We really appreciate if you can make an appointment to pick up, then we can be as organized as possible during our busy season.
