I inherited this bush when I bought my house a couple years ago. I think that it has a bloom on it at some point during the year, but I am not sure. Any ideas?

Thanks so much!

Welcome to ATP! I tried to give you a "clickable" link to our data base to look at some entries, but it didn't work for me. Check out the photos on the data base.

If you post the blooms we can probably narrow down a cultivar too 😀
