Superior Color and 4-Season Interest

Onondaga Viburnum, Viburnum sargentii 'Onodaga', is a perennial shrub with highly ornamental qualities. These make a spectacular backdrop for a perennial bed, or plant several along an outbuilding for a lively hedge.

Your Onondaga Viburnum leaves emerge in spring with a deep maroon hue. As spring turns to summer, you’ll see your foliage transform to maroon-tinted green. With the development of new leaves, the contrast of the two colors is simply stunning. 

Spring also launches Onondaga’s glorious flowers, which begin as maroon buds but quickly open to 5-inch, flat-topped clusters of pink-tinted white blossoms. As if that’s not enough, autumns brings bright red foliage and scarlet berries that will persist into winter (to the delight of your yard’s birds). 

Onondaga Viburnum is a deciduous shrub that grows up to 12 feet in height with an equal spread.  It has an upright habit that becomes more rounded with maturity. Onondaga is a shrub that’s amenable to pruning so you can trim it to almost any size/shape you prefer. 

It’s quite hardy, unattractive to deer and other pests and adapts to a variety of soil conditions.

An Onondaga Viburnum is one of those shrubs you can plant and forget…and yet it turns everyone heads. It’s a terrific investment in an ornamental shrub for your yard this summer.
