I have a very fragrant little shrub. I was told has been called Lady of the Night. It has a cluster of yellowish white very fragrant blooms similar to crepe myrtles. The leaves are also similar to crape myrtle, but smaller. The fragrance is very strong at night. Can you help me identify it?

I think you have a shrub called Brunfelsia americana. This shrub can grow to a height of up to 10', and has fragrant flowers that start out yellow and turn white as they mature.
