I have Viburnum Opulus and it's just starting to flower for the first time, it was given to me and as it grew I realised it was really two. I've got one here and one at the allotment. My flowers are much more flat looking.
I've never noticed one like that either, I think it probably looks alright when the flowers first open , they all soon look a bit tatty once past there best, I would keep cutting it, enjoy it at its best .
It is Phlox paniculata Mystic Green !! I had forgotten that I had bought it (on a whim) and it was the first time that it really flowered this year - very big flowers as well...the bees and butterflies are wild about it !!
