Don't know what it is, just come into flower. ID appreciated
Is one of the 'Philadelphus' family? (Mock orange)
It does look like a philadelphus - I have a couple - slightly different flower but I know there are a couple of varieties. Exquisite smell - I love them
I'm not so sure about Philadelphus. Do you have a photo of the face of any flowers?
Deutzia is a possibility
Yes, Deutzia gracilis I think. The orientation of the flowers and the number of petals said it wasn't a Phili not to mention the thickness of the leaves. Well done nut.
Maybe wrong but just looked in one of my shrub books and there's about 20 varieties of philadelphus
Ooops sorry crossed over
Will get a close up of flowers. It is only 3' width & 2' high after many years.
Thanks for all suggestions
I agree with the Deutzia opinion, Deutzia monbeigii
Oh, I'm not often right but I'm wrong again then because my philadelphus are much more rigorous than that
Thanks everyone I will have a close look at flowers, Deutzia gracilis is looking a strong favorite, Bamboogie I think monbeigii flowers late Summer.
Will let you know.
Don't think it's gracilis as flowers are pure white. Checked and shrub doesn't have any perfume.
Excuse me bumping this back up myself Just wondered if anyone had any ideas afer my last picture.
I inherited a Deutzia at my last house KEF - definitely didn't have any perfume and flowers looked identical to yours. I often find flowers which are supposed to be scented just aren't up here. I don't know if it's lack of heat- most scented plants seem to perform better when it's warmer so perhaps that's a reason.
YEYS!!! I've got a plant I've been meaning you guys to ID. It's a Deutzia too! It got to over 2m (before I pruned it) and is pale pink with flaking bark and a moss problem around base so obviously doesn't mind the damp. Looked up on RHS and sure I have Deutzia longifolia Veitchii.
Supernoodle seems we have the national collection
..I think the original photo of KEF's is Deutzia gracilis 'Nikko'.... I saw one the other day, it was fabulous... it grows more wider than tall... see what you think...
