Help id a shrub, please?
Hi, everyone. I'm trying, after 15 years, to actually "plan" my back yard, and make some sense of it. This shrub is one that is thriving, in spite of the fact that hubby and I have done some almost criminal pruning. It always comes back. I have long ago lost any memory of its name, and would like to be able to learn more about it. This photo is of fairly new leaves.
They start out creamy yellow, and the dark green starts at the center, and gradually spreads out until the whole leaf is dark green. You can see mature leaves behind and below the twig I'm holding. It has small white flowers in clusters shaped like grape clusters, and they are somewhat fragrant, especially early in the day. It also has black berries that birds don't seem to be crazy about. Does anyone know what it is?
