I am hoping, that someone can name this shrub for
me? I have had it for some time now, the problem, is, if
you do not know the name of your shrubs or plants you do not know how to care for them..




Its a Viburnum, and I'm still trying to decide whether its V. sargentii or V. opulus! Leaves don't quite look right for the latter... google them yourself and see.

This is a bit confusing? Thanks for letting me know that it is a Viburnum looks like either a `burkwoodi or `bodnantense i have just looked it up on GOY Directory under `V they all seem similar, cannot see the leaves clearly though..

`I think you are right Bamboo, it does look a lot like `Opulus..

They don't all have berries, and those that do often have black berries, so there are only one or two varieties and their various cultivars to choose from with those red berries.

The leaves don't look like V. opulus. Mine look like this -

Right, got it then - its Viburnum plicatum, probably 'Lanarth' - that's certainly what the leaves look like, but I wasn't sure what colour berries it produced, as it doesn't always reliably produce them, but they are, indeed, red I've managed to discover.
