From Classic Viburnums, explaining the difference between cultivated and wild species: […] While V. plicatum is the correct name for the species as a whole, individual plants belong either to V. plicatum f. plicatum (the cultivated sterile or snowball forms) and V. plicatum f. tomentosum (the wild fertile forms with lacecap flowers – an outer ring of large sterile ray flowers and an inner circle of smaller fertile flowers).  The common name for the species V. plicatum f. plicatum (the snowball form) is Japanese Snowball and all of its cultivars are commonly called Japanese Snowball.  The common name for V. plicatum f. tomentosum and its cultivars is Doublefile Viburnum.

It seems that our specimen is Viburnum plicatum f. plicatum ‘Grandiflorum’ – a large, maturing 8-10′ tall, but there is a dwarf and more compact version of the plant called Viburnum plicatum f. plicatum ‘Newport’.
