I love those trees taking their own back, Joan! It always makes my day when I see a dandelion breaking the concrete.

That is a gorgeous shrub, Sentient; so healthy and BIG! great scene!

Joan - you are amazing!  That Viburnum tinus is a perfect match!  You are fast!  Thanks, now I know.  I like virburnums but did not know there were winter blooming evergreen cultivars.

Amer, you stated, "My wife says God is punishing the infidel this winter by opening the heavens again and again and destroying his cactus. Do Gods in America behave in this cheep manner too?"


I, and many others do not believe god/s exists, although there are many who want us to be quiet and stop rattling our cages. they don't want us to tell others there is no god and we do not have to submit and obey, that we have a mind that evolved over many billions of years and the purpose of our mind is to think, reason, grow in knowledge, and put away old myths and delusions.

The leaves aren't right. My guess would be viburnum. 

My Climbing Hydrangea looks more like yours, but I don't know its species. It is a wonderful plant. The nursery told me it would take five years to get started, and they were right. Now it is taking off like a real keeper.

Hydrangea paniculata ssp viridis

oops, this isn't pink; the leaves look similar. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 6, 2013 at 2:34pm

First guesses, viburnum or hydrangea. Now, to the plant books. 

Comment by Daniel W on January 6, 2013 at 2:29pm

This shrub is blooming now.  It bloomed through 2 freezes and a snow.  I don't know what it is. Maybe someone can tel me.
