This shrub is growing all over my daughter's property here in NH. It's flowering now and it's extremely fragrant. Her husband wants to bulldoze them unless she can ID them, any help would be greatly appreciated. It's the pale green. olive leaf with white flower.

Here's a closer look at the flowers in bloom.

RE: Help with ID of this shrub

Are you wanting to id the plant with the silvery leaves or the one with the white rose-like blossoms? Because the two pictures are of two different plants.


RE: Help with ID of this shrub

Both if possible.

RE: Help with ID of this shrub

The silvery leaf is an Eleagnus umbellata, the rose like flower is a Rubus species ie Bramble. One is an invasive species the other a wild vining plant, or possibly a cultivated variety gone rampant.

RE: Help with ID of this shrub

Thanks! Not sure about the Rubus, will have to wait till fall and see if there's berries.
