Easy elegance of viburnum opulus

A reliable old favorite around these parts is the snowball bush, viburnum opulus.  Mine is from a rooted cutting my mom gave me.  It's the kind of plant that gets passed on from generation to generation.  Mine is planted in the back corner of the yard, and I think I like it best when it is at the edge of an open area that way.  It is especially pretty in the evening light.  I usually cut some of the blooms for a bouquet.

  1. I have always loved the snow ball I think, because my mama always pointed them out. Mama was never able to plant her own bushes, but I remember the parsonage at Albemarle had the snowball bushes for shrubs and she loved them.
