Viburnum x burkwoodii ‘Mohawk’
at Digging Dog

Viburnum

Viburnum, whether evergreen or deciduous, is certainly a shrub for all seasons: there’s ‘Diana’ to usher in spring and ‘Summer Snowflake’ adorning graduation and June weddings. Blazing with autumn color, and all bearing lustrous fruit through winter to attract feathered visitors, these graceful shrubs exhibit an enduring cold hardiness.

They prefer rich, moist soil and bloom best in full sun, but can also tolerate partial shade.

An ornamental prodigy from Dr. Donald Egolf’s esteemed breeding program, ‘Mohawk’s allure spans several seasons. Its first offering begins in spring when glistening dark red flower buds appear, followed by the spicy gala of clove-scented snowball-like blooms amid polished foliage, and continues through its brilliant orange-red autumn finale. Anticipation builds as clustered shiny buds wait a few weeks to open, revealing enticing, rouge-backed, waxy white flowers.

Amenable to varied conditions, yet flourishing in moderately moist well drained soil, this compact deciduous shrub hosts disease resistant dark green leaves, and can be cast as a star specimen, planted en masse or transformed into a picturesque backdrop.

Size: 6' 0"–8' 0" high x 6' 0"–8' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.
