Now then…there are plants that seem to do little most of the time. Viburnum ‘Bodnantense Dawn’ is one of those, it is a deciduous upright shrub, that will thrive in most soils.
The thing about this plant, is that it produces its flowers early in the spring, or even through late autumn and winter. Glorious dark pink flowers, perfumed with a delightful scent are a real pick me up at that time of the year.
Foliage is bronze coloured when young, turning green through the summer.
