The Mohican Viburnum (Viburnum lantana 'Mohican') is an incredibly tough, deciduous shrub that may be evergreen in warmer climates. Featuring flat-topped clusters of creamy white blossoms that bees and butterflies go mad for! Erupting in bloom throughout late April and May, the entire rounded shrub is enveloped in flowers at the ends of each stem!

Filling out in lovely deep-green foliage with the characteristic Viburnum foliage, it has dark, hairy leaves that create a dark background to showcase other plants. It displays a very compact form and has a mature height of 6 feet tall and sports an equal spread which can extend to upwards of 8 feet wide. It can however, be pruned to any size to suit your landscape needs!

This shrub has one of the showiest displays of bright orange-red fruit in early July, persisting for a month before maturing to black in fall. These berries add ornamental value as well as a vital food source for birds, both songbirds and migratory birds! Plus, the compact branching is perfect nesting and shelter all growing season!

Planting and Application:

The Mohican makes a nice specimen plant, especially when pruned into a small, multi-branched tree form that will add an incredible focal point to your landscape. Use in large containers and planters for a pinpoint screen, or as a solitary in-ground anchor towards the back of your property for birds and butterflies to come to visit.

Ideal in rows as a privacy hedge or garden backdrop, these densely branched shrubs are even incredible windbreaks. Plant in groups for shelterbelts and naturalized settings, and add privacy in specific areas. Use in rows along your home's foundation or to add an impressive barrier and property division.
