This shrub just bloomed with an intense fragrance. The leaves remain green all year. Tucked in a corner, it gets fir filtered light from 10 am and full sun starting at 5 pm. The flowers look like a slow-motion picture of a water droplet splash.
It is not an itea & someone suggested white butterfly bush but the flowers are quite different.

"The flowers look like a slow-motion picture of a water droplet splash". Lovey dubby

Yes, Cherry Laurel. The crushed leaves will smell like almonds.
