About Your Viburnum Mohawk

Low Maintenance Mohawk Viburnum Shrub

‘Mohawk’ is a popular cultivar that was registered and released into commerce by The United States Arboretum in 1966. Mohawk Viburnum is a truly breathtaking shrub when in bloom, clothed in snowy white fragrant flowers. Attractive horizontal branching and good fall color; makes a fantastic specimen shrub. Mohawk Viburnum is draped in stunning white daphne like flowers held atop the branches in mid spring. The black fruits are held in abundance in spectacular clusters from mid summer to early fall. It has dark green foliage throughout the season. The serrated pointy leaves turn an outstanding maroon red in the fall. Mohawk Viburnum is a multi-stemmed semi-evergreen shrub with a shapely form and gracefully arching branches. Its average texture blends into the landscape, but can be balanced by one or two finer or coarser trees or shrubs for an effective composition.This is a relatively low maintenance shrub, and should only be pruned after flowering to avoid removing any of the current season's flowers. It is a good choice for attracting birds to your yard, but is not particularly attractive to deer who tend to leave it alone in favor of tastier treats. It has no significant negative characteristics.

How to Care for Viburnum Mohawk

We suggest when planting your newly purchased Mohawk Viburnum plants that you dig a hole twice as wide as the root system but not deeper. Depending on the quality of your existing soil you may need to add a locally sourced compost or topsoil to the back-fill soil. We do not recommend using straight topsoil or compost as a back-fill soil because more times than not these products will retain entirely to much moisture and will cause the root system to rot. Adding compost or topsoil will help the young feeder roots of Mohawk Viburnum to spread through the loose, nutrient rich soil, much easier than if you used solely the existing soil which more times than not will be hard and compacted. The most common cause of plant death after transplanting is planting the new plant to deep. That is why we do not recommend planting in a hole any deeper than the soil line of the plant in the pot. A good rule is that you should still be able to see the soil the plant was grown in after back-filling the hole. Bio-tone starter fertilizer is a great starter fertilizer that provides plants with mycorrhizae fungus. It is a naturally occurring beneficial fungus that colonizes on the new growing roots of plants. It creates a barrier between the roots of the plant and fungus and pathogens that can cause root rot. We love this product and use it on all plants we install in our own gardens. Bio-tone is a gardeners best friend and can help guarantee your success.
