Viburnum x bodnantense 'Dawn' Hedging Plants

Viburnum x bodnantense Dawn is a deciduous, winter-flowering ornamental shrub that can be used as decorative hedging. It is suitable for any garden with averagely fertile soil.
Dawn is good for hedges up to about 3 metres high.

See our selection of hedge shrub plants or view our full range of hedging.

Viburnum hedge plants are only delivered pot-grown, year-round.
All our hedge plants are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the pots aren't measured).

Spacing a Viburnum bodnantense Dawn hedge:

Plant Viburnum bodnantense Dawn hedging at 3 plants per metre, 33cms apart.

General description:

This medium-sized shrub is one of the best winter-flowering bushes around, flowering intermittently on naked wood from October through to April. It has pink, tubular blooms, which are carried in numerous small clusters and give off a sweet fragrance that cuts through gloomy days. Dawn is upright in habit and it will respond to clipping very well, developing a dense thicket of twigs. It is a fine hedge plant, although we suggest having a look at the evergreen Viburnum tinus Eve Price for this purpose.
Once established, it makes an excellent host for a small clematis to provide flowers in spring and summer. Like other viburnums, Dawn has excellent autumn foliage colour, which is a marvellous bronze on this variety.

We really recommend planting Dawn in front of evergreens to proved a backdrop for its pale flowers, or beside a seated area or path where its scent can be enjoyed.

History & uses of Viburnum Dawn:

The original Viburnum x bodnantense was a hybrid of Viburnum farreri and Viburnum grandiflorum, first raised at Edinburgh's Royal Botanic Garden in 1933. Dawn was the first new variety raised from this cross. It has won the RHS Award of Garden Merit and the Award of Merit for its cut flowers.
