This viburnum has never had a name, bought cheap, lost label, years ago. Out now, fantastic scent, semi evergreen but the leaves turn red in autumn

and this one which I think is a petasites or near relation. Very white in flower to start with, then goes pinkish, about 2 foot tall. Invasive in a friend's garden where it came from but diminishing in mine, probably too dry in summer.

    image fidget,

    I did wonder about x burkwoodii aym but there are so many out there and I don't know the diffeences. It's not likely to be anything unusual though, given its originsimage

    Hilliers book describes x burkwoodii as dark shiny leaves, Brown grey felted beneath, fragrant white flower clusters, pink in bud. Flowers January to May.

    Roger Philips and Martin rix describe it as  deciduous shrub to 2.5 m, leaves I hate to Lancelot, flowers scented, 12mm across, .

    Other possibility is Viburnum x carlcephalum

    .hee hee autocorrect changes that to cataclysmic.
