But this is our mystery plant. I think we've had this plant for almost ten years and I still don't know what it is.
I've asked two master gardeners and still no idea. We bought it as a small twig with a few leaves and a sign that said "anemone bush - grows to 5 feet". That was so funny at the time because it stayed a tiny little couple of branches for at least three years.
Then it started to grow. And grow - it's over 5 feet now and it's been pruned often. Then one year, it produced a bud. One. It was a white flower which disappeared in less than a week. The next year we had more. Now, we have lots. This is a gorgeous bush when it flowers. The scent of the blossoms is stronger than our lilacs and is very pretty.
Anyone know what it is?
