    Hi guys,

    My wife purchased this shrub for me a few months ago. It said 'Philadelphus' on the box and that it grows to 9' or so. I'm fairly certain it had the right pic on the box (white flowers) and so I planted it hoping it might be 'Philadelphus virginal' which is a shrub I wanted. However, it grew a few feet rapidly then sprung into flower (a few weeks ago now - since gone over) and the flowers were pink and conical shaped, and I have no idea what it is. Here is the pic
    Thanks for any help ID'ing it -

    No not a Philadelphus I'm afraid TT, its a Spiraea maybe douglasii so no scent from it either.
