Hi all, I took several cuttings about 18 months ago and thought they were of my Philadelphus 'virginal' but they have unexpectedly flowered in their pots and the flowers look nothing like the shrub I thought I'd taken them from!  Any idea what they could be?  I have a few Virburnums but they don't really look like any of those either.  I have 5 pots all the same so it's not an interloper!

Did you take any callicarpa cuttings Bob?


Aha, I think you're onto something there nut!  I do indeed remember cutting back a callicarpa and would no doubt have used the offcuts as cuttings!
