Always look at leaf arrangement after enjoying flowers...especially on these two wonderful shrub genera. This is Eastern Ninebark (Physocarpus opulifolius).

Viburnum sp. will always be opposite; Physocarpus sp. is always alternate.

@vitrsna - I moved here and there were some very nice bushes established, though I didn't know what they were (until now!). I found a "woody natives" nursery when I first moved in and bought 5 or 8 small, young bushes at the time, but didn't know where to plant them. I "heeled them in" in a small area and then got out of gardening for a long while. They are no longer small! And in a clump, though that's where they'll stay... Way too big to move, and they flower and feed as they are. Warning to all: don't do as I did! Sighing!
