This is a hedge type plant that resembles nandina.The white flowers are about 1/2 inch long and are loved by the bees.It is blooming now and has been for some time.

It's an Abelia, most likely one of the Abelia x grandiflora cultivars.

I agree, looks like Abelia x grandiflora; maybe 'Kaleidoscope':

'Kaleidoscope' has variegated leaves and JT's plant doesn't. I don't know enough about Abelias to give an opinion as to cultivar, but my guess is that it would be difficult to determine as there are many that look so similar. Shrug!

Thank you both for the answer.I will do some checking and find a nursery that sells them.That shouldn't be difficult as they are plentiful around here.
