There are a few odds and ends here, showing late winter color.

The unusual members of the Viburnum clan - not the showiest, and not the best performers here - sport some refreshing color in February and March.

They are fragrant, and where they are top performers they can perfume your garden with a sweet scent. Viburnum farreri (Fragrant Viburnum) and Viburnum x bodnantense (Bodnant Viburnum) are two hardy plants, but that appreciate growing conditions that are cooler in the summer than the Ohio River valley region, where the soil temperatures get higher than these species prefer.

1. Viburnum farreri \'Spring Dawn\'

2. Viburnum farreri \'Spring Dawn\' (pink) and \'White Perfume\' (white)

3, 4, 5. Viburnum x bodnantense \'Dawn\'
