  • looks like a type of lilac? do they have a scent?

  • no smell. I have lilacs and this is different. Someone in the facebook group suggest Abelia and I believe that is what it is. Thanks Elizabeth!

    Thank you Carol Speake and your Facebook group. I just looked up Abelia and that is exactly what it is. Now I can get some in the Spring for my yard. YAY!

    That is a rose abelia. There are different types, compact and ones that are larger bushes. The flowers have a wonderful scent!

    That’s wonderful! I sent the picture to my sister who is a Master Gardener. She replied with the name but I couldn’t find your original post to answer. It is truly unique and beautiful. I have never seen this plant. Thank you to everyone who tried to help me out! Well done!!!
