Sorry the pictures are not real clear. This bush has been here at least 13 years, it was here when I bought my place. I am in the north Georgia mountains. It blooms every year and has a light scent. The bush is mainly in a shaded area.
Thanks for your help!

    It could be a flowering almond

    I think it is a flowering almond. They do have a lovely fragrance.

    Agree on the flowering almond. My Mom had one, they are beautiful with a heavenly fragrance! I believe it can be trimmed to become bushier....

    Thanks so much to all of you for the information. I think you all are probably right on the flowering almond..although the flowers on mine are not quite as pink as the pictures I saw. Mine are more white with purple/pink on the outer edges. It is blooming now, the 1st of June, and from what I read..they bloom early spring and I am in north Georgia. This bush is at least 10-15 feet high...the sites I looked at say they do not get this big..but..I really think this is it.

    I am sorry but I cannot remember for the life of me the name of this tree but it is not a flowering almond yes there are white flowering almonds however the leaf structure on the tree and the petel structure on the flower is wrong for a flowering almond the name will come to me and I will repost with said name

    My guess would be a mock orange ---

    I would agree with Vickie... the tree reminds me as being a mock orange

    Looks more like a deutzia. I have one in my garden that is a good 10' tall, blooms in late May-early June. There are also dwarf ones that don't get so big. Mine is white but there are pink ones also.

    well, I looked up mock orange and the flowers don't match, at least the way I see them. did not look like there was any pink/purple in them either...**sigh**... also the deutzia didn't seem to match the flowers either....**double sigh**

    You can take a cutting to your local cooperative extension for I'd.
