Often planted for its extended ornamental value, Viburnum x Burkwoodii Mohawk bursts into life in spring with large, shiny, bright red budded heads. The colourful buds adorn this dense shrub long before they begin to open. Once open, the white flowers are flushed with red edges and emit a wonderful, spiced scent. It is this aroma that makes Viburnum Mohawk a must when planting near paths, patios or entrance ways so everybody can enjoy the fragrance. The aromatic, summer flowers are followed by red fruits that ripen to back in autumn.

Unlike its parent shrub, Mohawk Viburnum is deciduous and the dark green leaves take on a multitude of warm shades in autumn, turning red, orange and yellow before falling. This small garden shrubs can be expected to reach 2 x 2m in height and spread and is best suited to a sunny, or partially shaded site and a moist, well-drained soil.

We also have a semi-evergreen Viburnum, for year round cover and screening.

Planting Advice for Viburnum x Burkwoodii Mohawk Trees

Our pot grown Flowering Viburnum 'Mohawk' can be planted at any time of the year. Prepare your planting site by removing all weeds and grass within a metre of your desired planting hole. Dig a square hole as deep as your root mass and approximately 2x as wide. To help your tree establish more effectively, we advise applying root grow (sprinkle in the hole for pot grown trees), especially if you have poor soil.

Gently loosen the roots and place into the planting hole. If you have poor soil mix 50% of your original soil with 50% high quality compost. Fill in the hole and firm around gently. Make sure not to bank the soil up around the collar of the tree.

Aftercare Advice for Viburnum Mohawk Trees

If you’re planting in spring, summer or dry weather, water well and regularly for the first few months. Make sure to keep an eye on young Viburnum and increase watering if there are extended periods of hot or dry weather. If you’re planting in autumn, you may only need to water your tree a little. We stock a range of irrigation kits, suitable for a variety of planting schemes.

Once planted, it is important to keep the area free of competing weeds for the first couple of growing seasons.

Pruning Advice for Viburnum x Burkwoodii Mohawk Trees

Simply prune your Viburnum tree after flowering but avoid pruning any new shoot growth if your area is prone to frost. Mature viburnum trees can be thinned out to improve their shape. Cut back any crossing, damaged or crowded branches.

The product table gives the sizes and forms offered for this variety, along with photos you can enlarge (these are only a guideline as all plants are unique so vary slightly). Below are definitions of various forms, which refer to the shape of the tree defined by the pruning it has received. For more information, please contact us.

Single Stem / Pruned and shaped: Classic shaped tree with a single stem that has had pruning to help create a beautiful, natural shape.

Top grafted: A height noted next to this form refers to the length of clear stem, which will not grow taller. Only the head of branches will develop. Top grafted trees do not require complicated pruning and are ideal for small spaces.

Multi Stem: A multi stem tree is has two or more stems arising from or near ground level, growing from one root system. Take care to buy a true multi-stem like all ours and not those that are 3 saplings in a pot to cheaply imitate them.

Feathered: A feathered tree has branches from the bottom of the trunk all the way up. These branches can be removed if a clear stem is required.

Bush: A plant with many stems low down, rather than one clear stem.

Climber: A plant that is a natural climber and will be delivered usually running up a bamboo cane, ready to position in the garden.

Standard Tree: A more mature tree with an upright clear stem of approximately 1.8m-2.0m (measured from the soil to the lowest branch), which supports a branched crown. Standards are available in different forms relating to their girth size (circumference of the stem measured 1m above soil level), not height.

Standard  either 6-10cm or 8-10cm girth, approximately 2.5-3.0m in height
Premium Standard  10-12cm girth, approximately 3.0-3.5m in height
Heavy Standard  12-14cm girth, approximately 3.5-4.5m in height
