Viburnum ‘Mohawk’

2006 Theodore Klein Plant Award Winner

Viburnum x burkwoodii ‘Mohawk’

‘Mohawk’ Viburnum has long been one of the gold standards of fragrant garden shrubs. This outstanding selection will grow to approximately 7’ tall and wide with foliage of dark glossy green in summer, changing to a rich red-orange in autumn. In spring, rich cherry-red flower buds put on a display for 10-14 days before opening to gleaming white, spicy scented, snowball-like blooms. This viburnum is perfectly at home in full sun or partial shade and is adaptable to a wide range of soil types. Excellent for use as a single lawn specimen, screen or natural hedge. This is one of the great plant breeder Dr. Donald Egolf's introductions known for their flowers and pest resistance; for more information see http://www.usna.usda.gov/Newintro/mohawk.html
