Shrub with Bell-shaped Flowers

jekeesl (south-central Arkansas)(7b)May 3, 2012

This shrub was about 8 feet tall, with a trunk approximately 1.5 inches across. Leaves were up to 6 inches long by 3 inches wide, dull green and hairy underneath, darker green, fairly glossy and mostly smooth above. Flowers were bell-shaped and cream-colored, with four tips that were angled so one edge was higher than the other. The flowers were an odd combination of green and brown on their tips below.
