|By the bridge, the Japanese Snowball Bush, Viburnum plicatum 'Mariesii' ,|
Planted a few years ago next to the bridge the Japanese Snowball Bush, Viburnum plicatum 'Mariesii', is putting on quite a show. Its many tiered horizontal branches, which were bare during the winter, are now covered in creamy white, flat lacecap flowers, it is said they give the the illusion of the branches being weighed down with heavy snow.

This stunning floral display can also be found in two of the lakeside borders of the Sultan Nazrin Shah Centre (SNSC) where a number of these shrubs were planted last year during the landscaping of the new building, their snow covered branches tipping gently towards the water's edge.
