Noticed this blooming the other day, but never did get a shot of the cream/yellow flowers. A few days later it looked like this. The second shot is rather blurry...had a hard time fighting the jungle where it is

I agree as well. One link (#2 ?) said it is threatened or endangered. Wonder how many things here are that. Don't know if any of you remember Floridian from DG, but when she came to visit she felt that I had several endangered plants on the property.
Thanks...off to the DB

Yes, I remember Floridian, we met at some of the swaps, she was a very nice lady.
I do have that shrub in my yard as well, and I think it is very pretty.
