Viburnum rafinesqueanum, the downy arrowwood, is a deciduous medium-sized (typically about 2 meters tall) shrub native to the Eastern United States and Canada from Quebec and Manitoba south to Georgia and west to Oklahoma. Downy arrow-wood produces ornamental but slightly malodorous flowers in Spring.

Viburnum rafinesqueanum has opposite, simple leaves and dark blue fruit in berry-like drupes. Foliage turns orange-red in late fall. Southern arrow-wood (V. dentatum) is similar, except that it blooms later and has broader, more coarsely toothed leaves and longer petioles.
