Viburnum x bodnantense 'Dawn' is a beautiful, deciduous shrub that is known for its fragrant, winter-blooming flowers. It is a hybrid plant that was created by crossing Viburnum farreri and Viburnum grandiflorum, and it has become a popular choice for gardeners who want to add some color and interest to their landscapes during the colder months. The 'Dawn' variety of Viburnum x bodnantense is particularly beloved for its clusters of pinkish-white, sweetly scented blooms that emerge on bare stems from late autumn through early spring. These flowers are a welcome sight in the garden, as they provide a burst of color and fragrance when many other plants are dormant or have lost their leaves. The shrub itself is fairly low-maintenance and easy to grow, preferring moist, well-draining soil and partial to full sun. It typically grows to a height and spread of 6 to 10 feet, making it a great choice for mixed borders, foundation plantings, or as a specimen plant. The foliage of Viburnum x bodnantense 'Dawn' is also attractive, with ovate leaves that are a glossy dark green in color and turn reddish-purple in the fall.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
