I'm Pretty But...

What is my name? Can you help me identify this lovely flowering bush?



This lovely bush is in the midst of an area that is about to be landscaped so excuse the mess around it. It smells lovely, a light sweet smell that just floats along on the breeze, attracting bees, birds and people...

I'd love to know the name of this beauty. Can you help? I promise we'll get back to genealogy next week...

Sorta reminds me of my Korean Spice, which is just now about 1/3rd into full bloom. Is this photo from this year?? I would think (?) that mine would be in full bloom before yours, as I am that much further south than you. But, we are talking Mother Nature here, eh?? Can't wait to see if some of your other readers have ideas.

Carol, this photo was taken yesterday. I love this bush & would love to identify so I could possibly get some others for the back yard.
Thanks for your thoughts. Appreciate it.

I'd take a branch in to the local gardening center and have them identify it for you.

Got curious and did a search -- it looks like the Beauty Bush (white) or Kolkwitzia based upon the picture at this blog: http://betsydevine.com/blog/2006/04/23/kolkwitzia-gesundheit/
