|Viburnum molle is loose and open in growth habit, reaching 10 to 12 feet in height. Exfoliating bark is an interesting feature; thin layers peel off to expose the brown inner bark. Dark green foliage in summer, typical white viburnum flowers borne on 3 inch cymes. Fall ripening drupe is dark bluish-black.
Similar in many respects to V. dentatum except for the peeling bark. The shoots were used by Native people for making arrow shafts.
