Focus on Plants - Pink Dawn Viburnum
One of my more favorite spring blooming shrubs is the Pink Dawn Viburnum (Viburnum x bodnantense 'Pink Dawn'). It is not too common, but I think it should be used more. The Pink Dawn Viburnum blooms typically at the same time as forsythias. While the forsythia has a “wow look at me!” display of yellow flowers, the Pink Dawn Viburnum make a less visual statement with fewer but larger pink flowers – But the fragrance of the Flowers is stunning! It is truly a must for the spring garden.The pink flowers open on bare branches in early spring, leading to dark green foliage that will give the shrub a crisp look in the summer and will have reddish hues in the fall time. The shrub will get around 10’ tall and 6’ wide and can also be trained into a small tree. If you would like to add fragrance to your garden in early spring, why not try the Pink Dawn Viburnum?
