Viburnum recognitum Fernald. Smooth Arrow-wood. Phen: Late Mar-May; Jul-Sep. Hab: Marshes, moist forests, streambanks. Dist: ME, NY, and OH south to e. SC, c. GA, and ne. AL. Most populations reported form further west (IN, IL, WI, MI, MO) are either misidentifications or introductions from horticulture, but material from AR seems to be bonafide and native. Reports from the Gulf Coast are all likely misidentifications of other taxa in the complex (such as V. scabrellum).

Origin/Endemic status: Native

Syn: = F, Il, K1, K3, K4, Pa, Tn, WV; = Viburnum dentatum – S, misapplied; = Viburnum dentatum var. lucidum – C, G, Mi, NE, RAB, Va; < Viburnum dentatum – GW2, W; > Viburnum recognitum var. alabamense – McAtee (1956); > Viburnum recognitum var. recognitum – McAtee (1956)
