    • I would say it has a fragrance, although not exactly pleasant, IMO.
      If you want a powerful, sweet smell, go for the Koreanspice viburnum or the Fragrant viburnum (not pictured). I can cut just one flower for my desk & it stinks up the room =-)

      • Thanks for your reply. When I grew up, we had two wonderful viburnum bushes in the backyard. The flowers had a most beautiful scent. I think the variety had the nickname “fragrant snowball”. Your Mohican looks very similar.
