It is outrageous what is happening out my back door. Beauty overload. The Viburnum macrocephalum (Chinese snowball viburnum), planted only four years ago have filled in the hill above the pond and it is nothing short of magnificent.
One plant can grow 10-12 feet tall and 15 feet wide. The color debuts in a chartreuse green folding into white during bloom.
One might mistake them for hydrangea....no?
The "leggie" looking plants don't pack much of a punch during the winter. Semi-evergreen in the south they have a strange, gangly shape and with or without foliage are not very forthcoming about the show they plan every spring. Once you see it, the gangly legs will seem better-looking than The Rockettes and life prior to this siting may seem uneventful at best.
Farmer Bob is understandably proud.
A lovely new intern out cutting with Farmer Bob. The branches she cut were as tall as she is.
Go cart go!
Off to market....off to wholesale....off to tables, and homes, and lobbies.....
Go Cart Go!
But please, if you will, leave some here for us...it is the spring of plenty and we are filled to the brim.
Thanks for stopping by!
