Re: unknown Viburnum

Well, Chris, looking at the leaf pix you posted, I think it's V.
burkwoodii as the leaf is much narrower & more pointed than x
carlcephalum - so those who voted for burkwoodii won:-)

Flower head size on V. x carlcephalum is about 3" as I recall; just
about perfectly round when in bud...at least on my plant, which (ref.
Kitty's post) blooms before it's fully leafed out and, I always
thought due to shade, is rather gaunt in form - quite open but IMO
