Viburnum rufidulum?

Check for the ID features, the flowers look correct and I think there's rusty hairs on the petioles.

That looks like Blackhaw Viburnum (Viburnum prunifolium).

I guess it can stay , being a native wildflower
Now I have to go see if there are more on the property
I may have mistaken them for dogwood in the past Shrug!

It reminds me of Blackhaw Viburnum (Viburnum prunifolium) too.

Cinda, have you checked to see if there's a rusty pubescence on the leaf petioles, and underneath the leaves?

From what I can see, and as I mentioned, there does look to be some fuzz on the leaf petioles (the stem which attaches the leaf to the branch).

I posted the key, the first part isn't showing now, but if you find pubescence then it's Viburnum rufidulum. If there isn't any, it will be Viburnum prunifolium.

Another difference I noticed is the stamens on the flowers, they don't look to be as dense or as long as in Viburnum prunifolium. Look at those on the site I posted.

The key is the important thing to follow though, not how it looks.
