Posted as a question but this might be a better place to ask - what are these two shrubs?

Philadelphus coronaria.....I am going by the shape of the leaves/veins and fact they are opposite.
Flowers are white...4 petals.
A shrub..deciduous.

But I have never seen/heard of Sclerocarpus uniserialis....Mexican Bonebract...interesting name.
Seems to be a wild flower rather than a shrub with woody stems.

Here it grows fast enough to be over 8' tall and the stems become quite woody.
