Winter’s Surprises

You don’t expect to find much fragrance in gardens at this time of year, but nature usually produces a few winter surprises.

One of these is the viburnum shrub, valued for its combination of colour and fragrance. Deep rose red buds opening to white flowers with pink tints are gathered in clusters along the bare branches and are usually produced so prolifically that twigs can be cut for the house without spoiling the display. (ref: Royal Horticultural Society – RHS)
