Like a Wedding Gown
My camera doesn't seem to be able to capture the beauty of this shrub as well as I think it should. Someone suggested it has trouble focusing on so many white flowers ....but it just may be the photographer )))) This is Viburnum plicatum f. tomentosum "Shasta" and she has been in bloom for about three weeks now. We planted her about eight years ago, along the steps at the side of the house going up to the back yard. It is under planted with Cotoneaster which mirror the inner florets. A self seeded apple tree arches above, and every year we consider removing it but haven't so far.
The branches are a mass of bloom,.... pure white, flowing and floating like the skirt of a wedding gown.
