Plant ID- Viburnum?

I don't know if this is native or not. It was growing on the edge of the woods beside the road. There are many more but this one has really large flowers- bigger than the rest. Reminescent of a chinese snowball almost. This is N La if that helps. I'm thinking some type of viburnum. It has a substantial trunk on it too. I really hope it's not a Photinia of some sort!

Looks like Viburnum rufidulum, yes. Known as rusty blackhaw viburnum. Can get up to 25-30 feet tall in ideal conditions. Very nice.

That looks like it! Thanks. Hopefully there might be a sucker I can dig up. This one had bigger flower heads than the rest.

Or you can try to root some cuttings from the new growth on the branches.
