Viburnum Mohawk, Birkwood Viburnum
Introduced in 1966 by the United States Arboretum, Mohawk Viburnum delights with fragrant flowers, attractive form and showy fall foliage. In spring attractive glossy red buds appear hinting at the gorgeous show that awaits. Buds open to pink and white flower clusters with a strong spicy scent that wafts through the garden. After flowers bright red berries appear that slowly change to black. Beautiful glossy green leaves look great all season, and turn a gorgeous maroon in fall. Reaching about 8′ tall and wide, Mohawk Viburnum is an excellent choice softening a corner of house, in the back of a garden or placed where a semi-evergreen hedge is required.
