” Pink Dawn” Viburnum x bodnantense

Viburnum-flowersA harbinger to early spring, the “Dawn” viburnum is also a good antidote to the winter blahs on a dreary gray sky January day. While all other deciduous trees and shrubs only hint at a sign of life with their tight buds, the viburnum has already burst into clusters of tiny pink flowers blooming on bare branches. Take a moment to smell the strong sweet scent of these blooms. Viburnum-closeup
After the blooms are spent, they are replaced by full vibrant green leaves, which turn a dusty pink-gold in the fall. The red berries in autumn are good for the birds.
