Viburnum × burkwoodii, the Burkwood viburnum, is a hybrid flowering plant in the family Adoxaceae (formerly Caprifoliaceae). It is a cross of garden origin between V. carlesii and V. utile, grown for its early, strongly scented flowers.[1]

Growing to 2.5 m (8 ft) tall and broad, V. × burkwoodii is a deciduous shrub with glossy, dark green oval leaves on well-branching, stiff stems. The sweetly scented flowers are pinkish white, borne in spring, and followed later in the season by red fruits ripening to black.[1]

The specific epithet burkwoodii refers to the 19th century hybridisers, Arthur and Albert Burkwood.[2]

Numerous cultivars have been developed, of which ‘Mohawk’[3] and 'Park Farm Hybrid'[4] have gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.[5]
