How To Identify Viburnum Specie

Question From: Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, United States
Q: Nancy, I read your article about the viburnum leave beetle with interest but have no idea which variety we have (maybe more than one). How do you suggest I go about identifying? Thank you.

A: Take cuttings of the leaves to the Bloomfield English Gardens and show them to Daryl Younquest. Info on when they bloom and photos of blossoms are helpful as is fall color. This is a huge genus. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
