I saw this bush at the Georgia Aquarium the Friday before Halloween. It was a green leaved bush with white fragrant flowers, it smelled so good. Does anyone know what it could be.
Green-leafed, white-flowered, fragrant:
Abelia mosanensis ÂBridal BouquetÂ FRAGRANT ABELIA
Cestrum nocturnum NIGHT-BLOOMING JESSAMINE
Choisya ÂAztec PearlÂ AZTEC PEARL MEXICAN ORANGE
Choisya ternata MEXICAN MOCK ORANGE
Gardenia angusta GARDENIA
Osmanthus fragrans SWEET OLIVE
Philadelphus MOCK ORANGE
Pittosporum tobira JAPANESE MOCK ORANGE
Ugni molinae CHILEAN GUAVA
Viburnum awabuki SWEET VIBURNUM
Viburnum x burkwoodii HYBRID VIBURNUM
Viburnum x carlcephalum FRAGRANT SNOWBALL
Viburnum carlesii KOREAN SPICE VIBURNUM
Viburnum farreri CHINESE VIBURNUM
I would definitely look up gardenia based on when it was blooming.
I would like to know what this one is. Found on Cape Cod near a pond. I have also seen them in the woods in CT.
Clethra alnifolia, summersweet. Lovely native shrub, very popular with pollinators.
(FYI you'll get better results if you start your own thread rather than piggybacking on an old one.)
Thanks. I'm still learning. Never saw this in August!
