Virburnum sargentii onondaga

Virburnum sargentii onondaga


Onondaga is a large, upright deciduous shrub (in our area) with 3-lobed, maple-like leaves deep bronze-purple when young, and purple in autumn. Lacecap flower-heads in late spring have deep red buds surrounded by white sterile florets. Upright habit when young, then more rounded with age.   In our garden we have placed them in part shade posiitons. However provided soil are kept moist they can be planted in full sun.


An outstanding selection introduced by the U.S. National Arboretum in 1966 as a result of the work of well respected hybridiser Dr. Donald Egolf.


Should now be available from most garden centres, including Bunnings and Masters.
