What's this guy? Popped up along my fence with these pretty flowers and I don't recall seeing it last year. Non-fragrant. It looks like a young tree. I curved the top down for the pic.

Great pics! Compare to this:
European Snowball Bush (Viburnum opulus 'Roseum')

Yes! I was just looking through the database and stumbled on this. I think that must be it!

Maybe, it was in the garden when we built our fence and the fencers chopped it down and now it's growing back. Fun surprise!

Thank you!

I will not guess on the variety but it is definitely a snowball bush Viburnum https://www.google.com/search?... Viburnum opulus is the most common species and most likely for an older planting. V. plicatum Is becoming popular. V. macrocephalum and V. carlcephalum are long shots
