Can anyone identify the 2 different shrubs in the photo? I live in Florida & they seem to withstand the Florida sun ... Therefore I'd like to put them in my yard
Any answers & advice is greatly appreciated

The round smaller plant is an Indian Hawthorn. The flowers are fragrant and is a very handsome mound shape shrub that needs very little care. They do not need pruning and they are happy with a feeding twice a year. They can reach six ft. tall but grow extremely slowly.

The other taller shrub may be a Daphne hedge but I am not quite sure.

Could you give us a closer picture of the flowers on the taller shrub? I expanded the photo you posted but they are out of focus.

Not sure if Daphne grows too well in Florida, they like cooler weather, I think. I'd be incined more along the lines of one of the jasmines for the tall shrub. Agree with Andrea on the Indian Hawthorne.

The larger shrub reminds me of Prunus glandulosa 'Alba plena'.. I've never seen it sheared like that, but it wouldn't surprise me either. They tend to sucker, so if you looked at the base, you'd see a little thicket of stems.
