roadside blossom of the day

This appears to me to be Arrowwood, Viburnum dentatum, based on my wildflower book and about 20 minutes of poking around via teh Google. The toothy serrated leaves look right, and the flower clusters look right, but none of the photos I've found in print or on the web has that reddish ring-shaped marking. So maybe I'm wrong. V. dentatum is often grown as a decorative shrub, but I found this growing wild by the side of the road.
