Just passed a house walking my dog and spotted a green shrub with white tennis ball size pom noms/snowballs on it. Fully in flower at this time of the year. Any clues, I thought viburnum were summer flowering. Could it be something else?
Some viburnums are winter/spring flowering p'girl.
I have V. burkwoodii - which is flowering now. Only planted in the autumn at the end of a border and will fill the corner. It has a good few of these
Smells lovely too.
Thank you - that is definitely going on my list to purchase.
I just went out and had a sniff W'onion. I have a very poor sense of smell but there's a bit of warmth in the sun and I could pick it up!
There is also a Vibernum called Vibernum opulus sterile which is just comming into flower, its known as the snowball bush. It might just be a little early to be in full bloom.
V. o sterile is always a disappointment to me. All those huge pompoms but no berries to follow. The species Viburnum opulus has much nice flowers and then berries.
I love my V O Sterile when it is in flower it's so eye catching and unusual , I quess we are all different and in the end it comes down to a personal choice. ?
