Pink Dawn Viburnum

//Pink Dawn Viburnum

Viburnum x bodnantense (cross between V. farreri and V. grandiflorum) is a hybrid viburnum that was developed at Bodnant Garden, Tal-y-Cafn, north Wales in 1934-1935. This shrub is noted for its extremely fragrant, tubular, pink flowers. In cold winter climates (including St. Louis), flowers bloom on naked stems from late winter to early spring. In warm winter climates (including the deep South and Pacific Northwest coast), flowers bloom on naked stems from late autumn to early spring. Flowers appear in flat cymes (1-2″ wide). ‘Dawn’ is a cultivar that was also developed at Bodnant Garden in 1934-35. It features rosy-pink flowers with purple-pink anthers. This is an upright, narrow, multi-stemmed, deciduous shrub that typically matures to 8-10äó» tall (sometimes more) and to 4-6′ wide. Toothed, narrow-ovate leaves (2-4″ long) emerge in spring with bronze tints, but mature to deep green. Foliage turns attractive shades of burgundy-red in fall. Flowers give way to red berries (drupes) which eventually mature to black by fall.
