Find a name for a bush

Find a name for a bush
Posted by Patty S. from Maryland z6/7 on 2001-04-18 20:08:10

I have seen a bush in my area that has small white blooms in the fall and is very fragrant. It attracks a lot of bees. The bush was about 3'to 3 1/2' tall and about 4' wide sort of round in shape. (I'm not sure if it had been trimmed?) It has a leaf that is on the small side like a azalea or a boxwood has. I would really like to know what it is called.

    See if you can borrow a branch and take to a nursery for ID-ing.

      Unfortunately I saw this bush in a customers yard about 2 years ago and I can not remember where it is to ask the name or for a sample. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Patty S.
