downy arrow-wood, Viburnum rafinesquianum

May 13, 2012. A beautiful sunny Sunday, headed for a high of 71. How could I not drive out to Ives Preserve to see what I could? The next few postings will follow me around to see what I saw. On my way there, north of town, I stopped to visit the pink viburnums. This is a shot of a typical white one. They also grow in the area. These shrubs grow in woods, mostly with oak, sometimes in the open as along fencerows, and rarely in damper ground. You can see them in AL, AR, CT, DE, GA, IA, IL, IN, KY(T), MA(E), MD, MI, MN, MO, NC, ND, NH(E), NJ, NY, OH, OK, PA, SC, SD, TN, VA, VT, WI, WV, MB, ON, and QC.
