Great shot of that Viburnum, I can almost smell the wonderful fragrance of those beautiful blooms!

Thanks for the sentiments, Lin - though 'Cree' (and Viburnum rhytidophyllum in general) is not one of the stronger pleasantly perfumed crowd. It is rather lightly scented, and not one that you'd likely remember again. It IS an excellent evergreen form though, and sets prolific showy fruit when cross-pollination is available.

Well, it's beauty sure makes up for any lack of scent!
