Viburnums

Back in the spring I wrote about my Flowering Bushes and one bush was a mystery.  A similar bush to the mystery one was ID’d as a Viburnam (V.lentago or Nannyberry Viburnam).  Garry Ladman from Classic Viburnams was helping me with the identification of both bushes.

Since that article, the flowers on both bushes have turned to berries and although the flowers are very similar between the 2 bushes (except for size) the berries are quite different – at least in colour.

I remember that Gary had suggested that I contact the university here to see if they might know what the plant is, but I just never seem to find the time.

After retiring from the Y, I ended up with 2 part-time jobs (well, sort of 3, I guess) that seem to keep me working 7 days most weeks.  I thought retirement was going to allow me to take it easy, but that hasn’t happened yet.

I first started trying to figure out these bushes back in 2011 – with this post.
