Trish id it's not a hydrangea, I have no idea but I would love to have one. The blooms a simply beautiful. How big are the blooms? It looks like a hydrangea tree, even theleaves like like that but smaller than most hydrangeas. But I don't think any of the hydranges have a scent. I'll leave this question for the plant experts to answer as I would like to know to get a plant like it. Does it grow in full sun or partial to help identify what kind of plant it is.
Saw it at a camp ground. I have a Snowball and it does not have a scent. I would love to find out as I want one of these. They were all over the campground. I also posted a pict of a pink tree I am looking for the name of.
It was in full sun.
Koreanspice Vibernum - They smell heavenly!
Thank you....It smelled awesome!!!
There are a number of wonderfully fragrant viburnums in addition to Koreanspice, which is Viburnum x carlesii. Here's a handy chart:
Where they grow, they all make terrific additions to the landscape.
Thanks Douglas, now there will be Viburnums selling like crazy.
@ If you can find a nursery who sells them :)
Thanks Douglas for the link!
I can't imagine a garden without some type of viburnum. They are wonderful shrubs.
Looks like a snowball.
Not a Snowball. I have one and it is not frangrant. It is the Koreanspice Vibernum
Love my viburnum!
My Korean Spice got away from me and went crazy. I put it in front of my greenhouse and it quickly grew to about 9 ft tall and so wide that it covered up the window. It got a serious haircut today. I love their smell.
If it is a bush. Could be a peony bush.
They are one of the plants I wish to learn how to clone
In pennsylvania it is called a SNOWBALL.
Looks like a Snowball Bush.
Could be a flowering lilac, but it sure looks like a Peony to me
We call them Snowballs here in Michigan.
We call them snowball bushes in Texas to !
This is a viburnum. I love the great fragrance. Here in Connecticut, they bloom in spring.
Viburnum are wonderful plant family that goes well and bloom in the spring in most of the USA, even the panhandle of Florida. It roots easily also.
It is viburnum carlesii, or Korean spice viburnum.
Whatever the botanical name, it is beautiful. I have seen them around different parts of New England and envy those homeowners who have them. Just so pretty!
It looks like a Snowball bush
MK I AGREE. I live in the Midwest and i have a Snow Ball huge bush that looks like this flower..They last awhile and are so bright and Beautiful, especially so when they grow taller and fuller..
There are 2 types of Viburnum that bloom like this in the spring. One is the snowball bush and the other the carlesii.
Sorry about above answer. I also found the Eastern Snowball (Viburnum opulus sterile). You need to look at the plant leaves and if it has berries.
I call it snowball Viburnum
I think it's mock orange they have a wonderfull perfume
