Agree with Arrowwood Viburnum - Viburnum dentatum.

Another picture or two that clearly shows leaf arrangement along the stems will always make it easier to definitely ID. Take a big whiff of the flower scent, and report back on that too. Helps to sort through the many flavors of this excellent shrub genus.

There are allied hairsplitter species including V. recognitum, V. rafinesquianum, V. bracteatum, and a slew of V. dentatum varietas and subspecies - but you'll mostly find V. dentatum in landscapes.

Thank You! Smiling
There is a fragrance... I wouldn't call it pleasant or unpleasant. I can't characterize it. Knowing how the bush came to be here, however, I figure it's dentatum, the common landscape one.

Afraid so. I'm going to try and get another or try seed hopefully this fall or next spring.

Must have more than one, so you get good cross-pollination and great fruit display.
