    Viburnum opulus 'Roseum' Hardy to zone 3 Also known as European Snowball. The large spherical flowers open apple green and then turn white. There are two bushes on my property. It is a rather spectacular bloomer for about three weeks in late Spring. My plants don't have much fragrance, but some types are most pleasing.

    The bush is at its peak for blooming. The balls are drooping due to being waterlogged from two days of heavy rain.

    Good camera and lots of free time helps.

    Actually photos and gardening are a perfect match. I only wish more people would learn to use their cameras and how to post pictures. It is always nice to see what other peoples gardens look like. Almost everybody has a digital camera these days- What gives?
