    Hi Carolyn,

    Looks as if it could be Evergreen shrub Viburnum. Enjoy!

    If it dies off then regrows it also could be JoePye weed

    That looks like pink Lilac to me . The leaves look right and the clusters of blooms looks right.

    If it is a shrub then it isn't Joe Pye Weed. The operative word in the name is weed.

    Hi, I agree with Hb, it looks exactly like my Reblooming Josee Lilac bush (shrub). My Josee Lilac has blooms with a lovely, sweet scent and blooms off and on during spring, summer, & fall here in Idaho.

    Not certain but I believe that is Kalanchoe Kalandiva. Note the leaves and buds as well as the flowers for comparison.

    Here is an excellent app for your phone.

    It really works.

    I have taken a picture of your picture and the first result says Lilac (Syringa).

    Another suggestion from the app is Korean Spice Vibernum (Viburnum carlesii)

    Try the app and see what you come up with.

    Thanks everyone for your assistance in identifying my scrub. I do believe now it is a Viburnum.
