Viburnum x burkwoodii - Burkwood Viburnum

Viburnum x burkwoodii is a hybrid of Viburnum utile and Viburnum carlesii pollinated by Burkwood Nursery in Skipworth, England in 1924. The Viburnum x burkwoodii is a semi-evergreen shrub, with large dark glossy green ovate leaves on stiff stems.

The shrub is small in size, with an open spreading habit that will reach a maximum 3.0m in height. Making them a brilliant shrub for those smaller gardens looking for an evergreen specimen.

The Viburnum x burkwoodii offers domed clusters of intoxicatingly fragrant white flowers that bloom in April and May. Following the fragrant white blossom are the red berries, that create a lovely colour contrast with the dark glossy leaves.
