My Favorite Shrub- Mohican Viburnum

Viburnum lantana ‘Mohican’ is a GO Natives Selection with

  • Dense compact form
  • Thick dark green leaves
  • Resistance to bacterial leaf spot
  • Long lasting multicolor clusters of orange-red to black summer fruit
  • Nice purple to reddish bronze fall color
Watch for the small, creamy white flowers in domed clusters that open in late April to early May with the expanding fuzzy young leaves.

Mohican is a great Viburnum for the Midwest- great for many tough sites including sun or shade, dry areas, calcareous soils, urban sites. Makes a nice hedge or screen with wildlife value.

We have Mohican Viburnum available in #5 containers from 2’ up to 4’
