Plant identification?
« on: 18/11/2010 22:36:06 »
My apologies if this is the wrong place to post this. Can someone identify this plant for me. It's from the Northwest United States, Seattle area. It currently has small blue seeds and is blooming, the blooms have a faint sweet smell.

Looks like a species of Viburnum. There are well over 150 different species cultivated, so it could be quite a task to identify it further.

Yep, that's viburnum I think. Characteristically produces small, pink, highly-scented flowers at this time of year.

Thanks! Vibernum tinus seems very similar.
