I know those leaves! I just can't remeber what they are! ::) I should be better at this game than I am. How about a Cornus? Maybe Florida? Probably way off. It's probably a picture of a chicken for all the luck I have been having lately.

The leaves for that little bugger are the ones that, when one walks around it, seem as though they will stick you, but are actually much softer than they appear.

An initial whiff of the flowers blooming seem, at first, to be rather adversely pungent, amost to the point of 'stink'.   A more in depth olfactory experience, however, is quite pleasant.  Almost intoxicating.

That's what it is.      ;D   A 'swamp' creature.

Aha! Thanks DL, it must be a Viburnum of some sort. Are we playing with books or without?
We are talking about the leaf in the upper left in the second picture, right?

That would be cool!  If it's a Viburnum it culls it down to 1:15,000,000 :D

All the leaves I see belong to the same plant, although some are more 'typical' than others.

I initially misread some because I was seeing partial leaves mixed in and figured it was a trick.

Here is another pic.

 

Look at the leaves in the background on the left side of the photo.  They are more "text-book" typical.  As you can see, it has an opposite leaf arrangement.

We've got'em planted in the courtyard at Warnell.  Is that one planted, or did you find it growing wild?

DL,

Found it in the wilds of East Texas. 

OK, y'all, Dodgy Loner is hanging back on this one (what you would call a gracious Dendro fanatic), so somebody drive the nail home on this one :).

*chirp chirp, chirp chirp*...Anyone?  Surely someone has a plant ID book that covers viburnums in the southeast.

Well, if we are going to use books, then I say it's a viburnaum dentatum, arrowwood viburnum.

There was a farmer had a dog...

Next time, you can just pretend that you knew it all along.  Books?  What books? ;)

Heck, thats an easy one. Its Highbush Cranberry. I just got done trimming the grass around one in my yard about 5 minutes ago. Mine still has the berries on it from last year along with this years new blossoms. There are a couple of Catbirds that have been gorging themselves on them the last couple of weeks. Never knew Catbirds to eat berries but I watch them in there all the time lately eating them. I think there are enough to last them the rest of the summer.

Viburnum trilobum is our highbush cranberry in the Maritimes. There isn't a line fence or abandoned field that hasn't got a clump of Viburnum trilobum in these parts. We also have V. edule here in the Maritimes, but it's called squashberry and grows on wet poor ground.

The flowers and leaves are different in our species, V. trilobum , and they grow up to 15 feet tall. I cut a lot out of the back yard a few years ago that were 3 inches at the stump. Talk about ruffed grouse attractant. They will come across a 100 acre open field for those berries. They have cranberry honing radar.  :D :D I have a small one on the front lawn, just starting to flower now. Yup, I've seen a grouse on occasion honing in on my bush. The flowers on our variety V. trilobum have a lot of sterile ones along the perimeter of the cluster and the arrangement reminds you of 'Queen Anne's Lace'. The EurAsian variety Viburnum opulus var. americanum or  also known as Viburnum opulus subsp. americanum is said to be potentially poisonous when green, and for some reason is the only one listed in Peterson's Guide to Medicinal Plants. Shame. They are not actually cranberries, but they taste the same. Cranberries are Vaccinium sp., just as blue berries. Alaskan blue berries in fact taste like cranberries. I've seen them canned in the west. Huckleberries also fall in the same family as blueberries, and they taste similar to cranberries.

Move'n on.
