Viburnum lantana 'Mohican' is one tough plant. It has the leathery leaves similar to Viburnum x rhytidophylloides 'Allegheny' and Viburnum rhytidophyllum, but it is completely deciduous here in KY.

'Mohican' flowers and fruits prolifically here; it is a good partner for the above-mentioned species. It is NOT a sweetly fragrant viburnum.

Big rough leafed shrub. Flowering minimal. More tolerant of soil conditions. No borer problems seen on this plant.
