96-120" tall (8-10 feet) x 96-120" wide (8-10 feet). A tough and versatile shrub, Mohawk Viburnum (Viburnum x burkwoodii) makes a striking accent in mixed borders and provides excellent structure with compact, upright growth. Plants provide a long season of color in spring, as red flower buds develop several weeks before opening, after which flowers remain about two weeks. Works well at the back of a border or as a foundational planting. The handsome foliage of ‘Mohawk’ is resistant to bacterial leaf spot and powdery mildew. Foliage remains evergreen in warm climates. For best fruit production, plant in groups to enhance cross pollination. Though the fruits are often hidden beneath foliage, birds have no problem finding them. Enjoy foraging songbirds in late summer and fall. Mohawk Viburnum requires little pruning, but plants can be shaped as desired after blooms have faded.
