Viburnum opulus maybe? If so, the fragrance will be marvellous.

Hi,
It is a variety of the Guelder Rose, but our native plant has bright red berries. As yours has yellow berries I think it looks more like a different variety - the Viburnum opulus Xanthocarpum.

Can't quite see the leaves properly but it looks like a Viburnum opulus to me - native to Britain. It has bright red berries in the autumn.

Viburnum opulus "sterile"
Lovely flowers, but the sterile refers to the fact that it does not produce seeds as the centre part of the flower have changed into extra petals.
Grows into a medium large shrub but can be pruned hard in early spring if need be or lightly after flowering.
If you want a similar plant with scent chose Viburnum × carlcephalum or Viburnum × burkwoodii which both take longer to come into flower & may not produce so many flowers the scent is stunning.

Thanks Pip. It is deffinitely Viburnum opulus as it has three lobed leaves.
I will attempt a cutting, I think, and also see where I can purchase one. I live near Burford Garden Centre, so am well located for searching.
Thanks again. I love this site!!

It's a snowball bush - or to give it the official name - viburnum opulus sterile. I have one of these in my garden and it's doing really well just now.

Thank you everybody - too many to respond to individually!
Can anyone tell me the difference between Viburnum macrocephalum and Viburnum opulus 'Roseum'? I'm loathe to complete a Plant Request Form until I'm absolutely sure.
Once my shrub loses its flowers (possibly in the next week as they are dropping now) it doesn't get a second flush. The flowers erupt green in spring, and as the pompoms swell, the millions of tiny petals unfurl white.
I may attempt hardwood cuttings, and try to find space in my postage stamp for another!
:-)

Hi Freddie,
I think it is Viburnum opulus 'Roseum', also sometimes known as 'Sterile'. It is a fabulous shrub, great for cutting. You often see it sold as a cut flower or in bouquets when it is cut early when it is still green and smaller.

Hi, Chris,
The first one is Viburnum opulus (or a cultivar) - I'll have to check out the others when I have a little more time to peruse. I agree with other posts about the Geraniums. Pity more things arent flowering - that always make idents that much easier! :)

Pruning new hedges

Question from Candy Blackham

In forum: New to gardening

I am about to plant new hedging which is a mix of indigenous plants - Acer, hawthorn, spindle tree, wild sloe, cherry plum, viburnum opulus and the field rose - do I need to prune any of these to encourage bushing? And secondly, I have inherited some yew hedging which is about two years old - am I correct in thinking I need to keep the leading shoot and trim (cut back) the side shoots?

Viburnum opulus

Comment from Miriam Mesa-Villalba

In forum: Viburnum opulus

The large clusters of round, brilliant red, glossy - almost translucent - fruits remain on the plant throughout the winter and look particularly attractive against a background of snow, at least until they are eaten by birds. The common name 'guelder' comes from Gelderland, the Dutch province where the tree was first taken into cultivation.

Ornamental pond and planting

Photo from Fi

In forum: Ornamental plants

Hi all
I have an ornamental pond as well as a wildlife pond beyond the veggies. The pic shows the slate stones and ornamental grasses surrounding, and you can make out the amusing Juncus grass (wiggly stems). There are also some lilies and alchemilla that haven't yet come into growth. I have backed the pond with a slope of spring bulbs, red and yellow cornus (dogwoods), a ground level bird bath, and ground cover like ajuga, liverwort, hardy geranium, spurge. Further back is a viburnum opulus (?) white flowers, red berries grows in the wild) which I am very excited about. Golden rod and rose of sharon also refuse to leave! Any other complimentary planting I would be grateful, it's a dry, but fertile area, prone to couch grass and other unwanted perennial weeds.
