Viburnum x bodnantense ‘Charles Lamont’
This plant is a lovely addition to the winter border as it is covered in strongly fragrant tubular flowers in shades of rich pink. Equally at home in a sunny border or in a woodland setting, we grow it in groups of up to four in association with other fragrant shrubs such as Chimonanthus nitens in the Winter Garden and Lonicera x purpusii 'Winter Beauty' AGM in the Lower Shrubbery. We have also planted it in the Woodland Walk in Lady Anne's garden where it makes a valuable contribution to the shrubby layer among the rhododendrons and camellias.
