I've decided to allow the Arrowwood Viburnum (V. dentatum) to stay. After a good five years of not blooming, it has finally justified its existence on my corner of Katy. I told it last fall that if it didn't bloom within a year, it was history. Evidently it took the threat seriously. It's planted next to the Oakleaf Hydrangea (H. quercifolia) and Bear's Breeches (Acanthus mollis). I'm quite taken with the combination.
The Head Gardener points out that perhaps it would have bloomed sooner if I had followed her advice sooner, which was to plant it in a spot and LEAVE it there. Know-it-all. I hate it when she's right.
