Viburnum x bodnantense ‘Dawn’ (also called arrow wood 'Dawn')
Large, deciduous, upright, this shrub is a cross between V. grandiflorum and V. farreri. Flowering from late autumn to early spring, so useful for winter flowers, fragrance and colour. Good for flower borders and low maintenance.
Attractive foliage in spring and summer, scented flowers in late autumn to early spring.
Upright, open habit. Light brown bark.
Leaves appear first bronze, darkening to green, ovate and deeply veined.
Racemes of dark pink buds open to fragrant pink flowers.
Spherical, blue-black or purple fruits.
Full sun/partial shade.
Well drained, light, moist. Prefers a rich, loamy soil.
After flowering, prune established specimens, removing up to one in five of the oldest and weakest branches to the base. Harder pruning will keep the plant compact.
Take cuttings in summer or layer branches in autumn.
