If you want both colour and perfume in the winter garden then this is the plant for you. A beautiful example of a winter flowering shrub with deep pink flower buds opening to a paler, more delicate pink followed by thick ridged leaves in the spring, typical of the Viburnum. There is a beautiful example of this plant next door to my local garden nursery, just this morning I parked my car so that I could go bathe myself in its exquisite perfume and take these photos.
