Viburnum x bodnantense 'Dawn'


Hardy Shrub

  • RHS Award of Garden Merit
In the depths of winter, this hardy, deciduous shrub bursts into life producing masses of richly perfumed blooms on bare, woody stems. The dark pink flowers fade slowly to white before giving way to small, rounded, purple berries in summer. By autumn, the green foliage of Viburnum x bodnantense 'Dawn' transforms to a vibrant cloak of orange and yellow, in one final display before the winter returns. This superb RHS AGM variety has a particularly long season of interest, making it an excellent choice for prominent borders and wildlife gardens. Height: 3m (10'). Spread: 2m (8').

Ideal For:
cottage gardens, scented gardens, wildlife gardens, low maintenance garden, cut flower garden, specimen plant, woodland garden
Flowering Period:
January, February, March, April, October, November, December

Grow Viburnum plants in a sunny or semi shaded position, in any moderately fertile, well drained soil. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the soil. Plant Viburnum shrubs at the same depth as they were planted in their pots. Backfill the planting hole and water well to settle the soil.
Water regularly throughout the growing season until young plants are fully established. In spring, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the plant. Viburnum requires little pruning. After flowering cut back stems to a healthy bud and reduce any stems that spoil the symmetry of the plant. Caution: Viburnum fruits are harmful if eaten.
