Is Viburnum opulus 'Roseum' attractive to bees and other pollinators?

This cultivar has gorgeous, but sterile flowers, so I am puzzled if it produces nectar or pollen at all, which would make it desirable for bees.

There is a blog post that claims that some plants with sterile flowers are attractive to bees (their flowers produce nectar, but not seed). The plants mentioned are:

  • Geranium rozanne
  • Helenium ‘Sahins early flower’
  • Lavundula ‘Eidelweis’
  • Agastache ‘Blue boa’
  • Erysimum ‘Bowles mauve’

But Viburnum opulus 'Roseum' is not among them. (It may be not considered in the study altogether.)

So...?
