Vibernum bodnantense 'Charles Lamont'

I have always coveted V. bodnatense with its beautiful scented flowers on bare wood. A friend has a really old one that is now like a tree (she has cut it to two main stems) and it looks really Japanesey when in flower. It also has fasbulously "ripped" bark but she doesn't know what it is. A neighbour has a younger one and it flowers for quite as long as the Daphne. I have umm-ed and ahh-ed between the most popular 'Dawn' and 'Charles Lamont'. My neighbour's is lovely and is Charles Lamont so that is what I have bought. It will live on the terrace in the ground so I can appreciate its scent. During the summer its more boring form will be hidden by other deciduous plants and herbs.
