October & November portraits of
The green citrus-scented leaves of the
Dawn Viburnum take on subtle colors in October (2003).
We have two of these shrubs, one on the roadside,
this one very protected within a fenced garden.
The pink flower behind it is a Japanese Spirea,
& the purple bamboo-like leaves shows a Nandina.
This again is the one in the back fenced garden,
shown in November with about half its leaves fallen.
Dawn Viburnum blooms primarily in autumn
& winter, but because the flowers are little & the
leaves are big, it looks its floweriest at the end of
autumn & throughout winter with no leaves at all.
This is another Dawn Viburnum by the front roadside,
shown in late October (2003) with the green leaves
acquiring a cloudy purplish sheen, & opening buds
of white-pink blossoms. The pink-&-white flower
that poked into the picture
is on a shrub sage, 'Hotlips' Salvia.
Here is the same roadside shrub a year later,
late October 2004. The leaves are beautifully burnished.
The flowers are beginning to show great numbers,
but won't be their showiest until leaf-fall, leaving onl
clusters of white-pink blooms upon the branches.
The roadside shrub again, this time at the tail end of October (2005),
showing how strikingly colored the leaves can become
in October & November, just before they're ready to fall.
Read much more about this shrub
& view portraits of its winter flowering, see the
Viburnum bodnantense 'Dawn' page.
