Re: Viburnum

Well, who cares if Dirr doesn't like it? I have 3 Viburnum in the back that
I thought were macrocephalums when I purchased them about 4 years ago, for
$1.50 each at the end of the season at Wal-Mart. Turns out they are not a
snowball, but the more beautiful (I think) form that looks almost like a
dogwood. Tiered branches, with sort of lace cap blooms. Can't recall the
name off hand, but I was thrilled when I realized what they were last year.
It was the first time they had really put on a show. I've been watering
them better lately so they'll put on an even better show this year. 

Who's ready for spring!
