This plant sprouted in my front garden this spring and I don't know what it s or where it came from.
I had to go to my desktop to attach the photo.

    Take a copy of this picture to a true plant nursery (not a big box store). They should be able to help you. Good luck.

    am anxious to see if it has a bloom. The leaf looks like a Daphne.

    I have a few Montauk daisies in my garden and last year they were pretty big and floppy when they finally bloomed in the fall so this year I cut them back by a third in mid June. They looked pretty ragged until recently, now they are filling in and beginning to make buds. Last summer they were still blooming when the Muhly grass turned pink in October (zone 7a). They are a nice plant if you have the space!

    I don't know the generic name of this but it's called a daisy bush. A neighbor gave me a cutting a couple of years ago. Now it's threatening to take over my space.. If it isn't cut back a few weeks after all the pretty white flowers are gone it will spread to twice the size by next spring. Flowers in late July thru August here in Massachusetts.

    I always cut mines down in early Spring it makes for a more compact more attractive display. Here is a link:
