Pretty Flower from an Ordinary Shrub ?

When I was searching for an all purpose shrub to tolerate shade and dry conditions .. and cover up the bottom of the Dutchman's Pipe vine with some interest .. Viburnum came to mind .. I would have to go on one heck of a tag hunt to figure out which one this is. BUT .. I do know it is a rather standard type .. not a party girl shrub .. this one wears sensible shoes and makes do with little attention ? All of this is true yet in late Spring she blossoms with the most remarkable white flowers that say " Here I am !"
I could be Cinderella if I wanted to ! : )

Viburnum is so pretty...it looks like this one sure does the job it was intended to do. :)

Hi Nancy .. for a "Plain Jane" variety it does have its moments ! The flowers remind me a little of hydrangeas .. pretty !
