A viburnum?

Hello! Another plant to identify for eagle-eyed gardeners.

I believe this is a viburnum, but may be completely wrong. However, can anyone tell exactly what it is?

It is rather wonderful in attracting lots of insects when its unassuming flowers appear around early June. The berries are plentiful thereafter (many more (or larger?) today than on the photograph below)

Thank you very much!




  • Looking around: could be some sort of very large-leaved cotoneaster?

    Cotoneaster. Plenty of grub for the birds too! image

    There's one called bullatus which is more tree like than shrub. Could be that.

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
