On my walks around the village I often pass this shrub on the ccorner of someones garden. Could any one tell me what it is please.

It has a very strong aroma to it. Sorry about pics but did it very quickly on my mobile.

    It is definitely a Viburnum, I think V.carlesii, but possibly V x burkwodii.

    also have a look at V. Juddii.

    They're all pretty similar but might help you pin point yours.

    I have V burkwoodii and I would say that it has a hint of pink in it.

    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.

    Thank you everyone,  googled the above, its possibly a burkwoodii. Juddii, looks too pinky. But next time I walk past the shrub I'll have another look. Not brave enough to knock on their door!  And I've never seen anyone there when walking past image
