Guess what Dee and Dahli, you are both asking about the same shrub..., what's the odds of that happening ! It's a Viburnum Plicatum Tomentosum. It is covered in white blooms in late April and has red berries in Summer that turn black in Fall,and the berries are a good source of food for the birds. In the fall the leaves turn a pretty reddish purple. So it's definitely a prized specimen in my garden , with three seasons of interest in it's favor.

Yes, Don't forget the Doublefile, it is I believe Viburnum Plicatum variety Tomentosum or many times listed as Doublefile Viburnum. This would be an important difference in what you may end up purchasing. I planted 4 of them in a row as a backdrop for my garden in my previous house. The Doublefile means that the flowers form in a double row along the branches and as they age they arch up and then downward, curving back up toward the ends, giving them a arching display of elegant white flowers. I love this shrub it was hardy and easy to grow and beautiful to display. Just my two cents.

Seeing your pictures is making me homesick for good ole NC. I grew up near Wilmington.

So glad to hear you all like my hobby,(on the verge of being deemed an obsession, according to my hubby...lol).
We have been blessed with wonderful weather so far this Spring. It's been mild and wet, as Pippi knows that's unusual for us ! Thanks again for your kind comments, you do my heart good....;-)
