It Bloomed a Little Last Year!

Maybe it was saving its energy for this year!  This is a viburnum called 'Newport'.  Supposed to be a smaller size!  Ooops!  It got bigger than the four foot height.  It is about four feet wide.  I had a gentleman call Gardenline the other day and rant (in a nice way) about why the Penn State publications don't specify better sizes of plants.  He didn't let me tell him that it is an estimation because of your garden soil and your managing the plant are other factors that cannot be estimated!  Usually they are industry sizes that are used!  Gardenline always interesting never boring!  Hope you have a local extension office in your area and that if you are gardener, you take advantage of the great resources they have.
