I read somewhere that some viburnum just have a stinky smell and some just stink when they are trying to attract pollinators. I think this link talks about it.

Yup...they can smell pretty bad the last few days of blooming. Otherwise they are very nice shrubs in the landscape...First time mine bloomed, it was lovely...a couple days later i kept checking my shoes...and wrinkling my nose looking for the Viburnum...grin

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
