Viburnum opulus ‘Roseum’
Is livening-up our yard right now. It’s fluffy white blooms look like huge snow balls bedecking the shrub in a festive way.
Before the flowers are fully open they are light green, which I’m sure would appeal to all those green flower lovers out there.

Viburnum opulus ‘Roseum’ I first mistook this plant for the oakleaf hydrangea. Thank you to Donna at Mother Nature’s Garden for identifying the plant for me.
This cultivar is also known as “sterile” because it does not have the typical viburnum berries in autumn. According to gardening literature, it is a typical Southern-gown plant.
My only complaint is it looks like this and gets progressively worse during the season. As you can see in the photo the branches are very slender and incapable of holding up the large blooms.
I leave you with another iris photo. Have a lovely Monday, everyone!
