Garden mystery

I have a viburnum (Viburnum plicatum var. tomentosum) in the middle of my back yard. The first few years it was there, it grew, then we had a drought and for the next few years it actually got smaller each year until I thought I had lost it. Then suddenly it started growing. And Flowering. When it flowers it looks like it has snowed on just one plant. It is gorgeous, stunning and everyone  would comment on it.  This was it in October 2012. Viburnum plicatum var. tomentosum

But just two years later it is a very different plant.  I haven’t pruned it, but the lovely spreading shape has changed dramatically. backgarden 28 gumtrees

It starts out covered with flowers, but every day there seem to be fewer on display. Rufus

I just  don’t understand what has happened. Rufus

It’s a complete mystery.

  1. Goodness gracious! Even w/ pictures it’s a mystery. *chuckles* naughty boy.

  2. Hmm, I hope you solve the mystery soon. In the meantime, Rufus is looking well. He seems to have recovered from his injury..

  3. So if I get one of these plants do I get a Rufus??? Very cute, though not sure Coco would like him!

    • You’d probably fit a carnation in the flat better. I’m not allowed to have any species of dianthus (carnations included) flower, so I assume they come with a free Rufus too.
