Viburnum x burkwoodii 'Mohawk' Shrub

Flowering Viburnum Shrubs

from From £39.99 (ex. VAT)
( £47.99 (ex. VAT) inc. VAT)

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

When planting flowering viburnum trees, such as the Viburnum Mohwak, it is important to prepare the planting area well. Pot grown viburnum trees can be planted at any time of the year. You will need to carry out the following to prepare your planting site.

Firstly, remove all weeds and grass within a metre of your desired planting hole then dig a hole as deep as your root mass and approximately 2x as wide. We recommend digging a square hole as this encourages the roots to grow straight as opposed to around inside the hole. 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.

Before planting your lilac tree, soak the roots in tepid water for 10-15 minutes, then gently tease the roots. 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 as this can cause problems. To see how to use a tree stake and tie, watch our informational how to videos.

Aftercare Advice for Viburnum Mohawk trees

If you’re planting in dry weather, water well and regularly for the first few months. The same goes for spring and summer planting. Make sure to keep an eye on your young tree 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 also 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. Using a glyphosate based weed killer or installing mulch matting and bark chips will aid in this. Do not simply mow the grass surrounding your tree as this will only encourage growth. If you know your area is prone to rabbits, we would advise using a rabbit guard.

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.
