Viburnum_burkwoodii_Mohawk_overall

Definitely on my list of top three favorite Viburnums, Viburnum x burkwoodi ‘Mohawk’ has quite an impressive resume. Not only are the pinkish-white flowers showy and fragrant, the flower buds themselves are glossy and dark red which gives the plant added early-spring ornamental value. The leaves turn orangish-red in Fall, making this an eye-catching display in the garden during multiple seasons.
