RE: unknown Viburnum

V.  Burkwoodii  was my guess all these years, especially since it's
semi-evergreen.  After searching all those sites, I found out that the vast
majority of viburnums are deciduous.  Also found another good link (Michigan
State's Plant Encyclopedia):

I like the open form of some viburnums when grown I shade.  It allows you to
"see through" to the rest of the garden. It feels more expansive in a small
garden if you know what I mean.

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 loverly.
