Sheena’s Plant of the Month: Viburnum x bodnantense ‘Dawn’
This shrub has deep pink flowers which are on show during mild periods throughout the winter. It also has a wonderful fragrance and so is a great shrub to plant close to the house or near garden paths. Bring the garden indoors and add some colour to a dark windowsill. Viburnum x bodnantense, when cut, will last for a long time.
V. bodnantense is an upright shrub that grows to a height of 3m. It readily produces new stems from the base. Prune out old wood – cut the old, unproductive stems in early spring immediately after flowering. Allow young plants to develop naturally.
