This is the bloom of a Hobblebush (Viburnum alnifolium).

The bush is about 4-5 feet tall and the flower heads are about 5 inches in diameter. The showy flowers are sterile.
Another view of the flowering heads of the hobblebush.  The heart-shaped leaves remind me of seersucker fabric.
A final photo showing off the highly textured leaves and stark white flowers.
