Arrowwood Viburnum (Viburnum dentatum) would be my guess, but can't be sure without a better look at the leaves.

I agree. Here are a few pics I took last month.

It looks like Viburnum dentatum to me, but it could also be Viburnum recognitum.

Based on geographical location, I think it's recognitum. Thankyou.

They both occur in Illinois and considers by some to be a variety of the same species. according to the article I posted above they can usually be seperated by the pubescence of the leaf underside.

"Comments: Smooth Arrow-Wood is very similar to Viburnum dentatum (Arrow-Wood) and it is sometimes considered a variety of the latter species. Smooth Arrow-Wood has leaf undersides that are hairless (or nearly hairless), while the leaf undersides of Arrow-Wood have fine downy hairs."

Thanks. The distribution maps for each indicates dentatum is confined to a couple of counties in the southern tip while the smooth is in Sangamon Co. where photo was taken.

USDA shows it in Sangamon Co. You Id is probably correct, but if it is not too inconvenient it wouldn't hurt to check. I use distribution maps as a starting point but not as absolute authority. I have found serveral plants that supposedly don't grow here.
