Brief encounters with life and other things
Not positive here, but I think thats a philadelphus, also known as a mock orange. My mum loves these and they do indeed smell gorgeous.
I'm not green fingered but I did have a Philadelphus, and I don't think it is that, as that had bigger single petals that dropped all over the floor and were about the size of a 5p piece. Although, I may be wrong!!!
I looked up philadephus in my shrub book, I couldn't really tell from the illustration, but it said it flowers in june/july, so I dont think it can be, as its very definitely in full flower now.
I don't really know much about plants but have a look at this:http://landscapingideas.org.uk/some_plants_shrubs_useful_for_landscaped_garden.htmScroll down the page a bit and look at the photo of the viburnum. Looks a bit like your plant and the description fits.What do you think?
well done elaine, I'm sure thats it. I have vibernum in my shrub book but there are apparently so many different varieties and none of the ones illustrated look like this. but I found one on the website that is exactly this one, thanks.
You're welcome :)As I said, I barely know one plant from another but Google is wonderful :)
I think it is definitely a viburnum because it is the correct time of year for flowering, they have a lovely scent and I've had two in the garden in the past. Lucky lady - they are beautiful
Doh, you are all right, of course its a viburnum, I read this when I had not had my brekkie. Sorry
Looks like you've got the answer but my Mum used to call hers the snowball tree! Thanks for the comment on my blog, the Morris dancers were at the Mayday celebrations in Ilfracombe a few years back.
Many thanks for your advice Joy -will give it a goxx
