We have a shrib that blooms in the spring. Lovely whitish pink blossoms with a wonderful scent, (my family seems to think they smell like lilacs). When you touch them or put them on your clothes, it leaves a lingering scent. The blossoms look like hydrangia blooms,
Please help (do your best) and I will appreciate it very much.

Phil,

Based on your description my best first guess as to the identity of your mystery plant is that it is a Fothergilla. The following website has a photo for you to confirm this guess:

Please submit another question to the Monrovia website if this is not correct and we'll be happy to try again.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
