Viburnum

Flower structure and habit are not correct for Prunus subhirtella.Winter flowering Viburnums are also deliciously fragrant, and in the Caprifoliaceae family not Rosaceae.

Thanks

I didn't realise the viburnum grew so large - I was thinking in terms of trees. I've only seen P. subhirtella from a distance, I'll look more closely at the flowers next time.
