I do not know. Are the blooms scented at all?

i could not smell much of one.  i don't know if it was because there wasn't one or if it was because it was overpowered by the honey suckle near by.  the last picture shows the leaves best.  it reminded me of spirea but was more tree like than bush like.

Could it have been cut to tree form and that is why it wasn't a bush? :unsure:

No, this is natural growth. Jimmy has a green thumb, but not a lot of interest.  His idea of cutting back is to cut to the trunk or cut it down and see if it will grow back.

Flowers remind me of a butterfly bush. :ScratchHead: Still trying to figure it out...

I've seen that somewhere before but that doesn't help one bit does it.

I saw it at Lowe's last week.  It's a type of honeysuckle.
