Lace Cap Tree?

I had a few minutes to kill before an appointment in Penzance yesterday so I went for a walk in Penlee Park.  It was a bright but breezy day and I came across this tree near the tennis courts with beautiful clusters of white blossom, dancing in the dappled light.  It reminds me of the Lace Cap Hydrandeas in my garden.  I love the soft pinky- purple heads of my garden shrubs and often use them as an arrangement in the house because they look so spectacular – this photo was taken late last Summer.  I tried to find the park tree in one of my ‘Tree’ books but can’t identify it….

    Is it a variety of Vibernum? I saw a similar tree at Marwood last weekend.

    I think it might be VIBURNUM plicatum ‘Watanabe’ – Burncoose Nurseries in Lanner have it on their website.

    Hope you have a happy Open Studios! I will try to come and see you later in the week.


  5. Thank you….I am hopelessly unprepared for the fun of Open Studios having just got back from the party that was my daughter’s wedding! Looking forward to seeing you then, perhaps, later in the week.
