On a garden tour today, several were trying to figure out what this little tree/shrub was. Multi-stemmed, cute little blooms, the plant was maybe 8-9 ft. tall. Blooms did not have a detectable fragrance but the bees sure loved it. Didn't take a photo of the overall plant. This was a garden with a lot of native plants, a wonderful pollinator garden.

I don't know what shrub/tree that is but those blooms are so different and so pretty! Lovey dubby I'll be watching in hopes that someone identifies it!

I tried using whatever search terms I could think of to narrow it down, but nothing. I ran out of ideas. Hope someone eventually recognizes it!

I think FrillyLily is onto something! Thumbs up

It may be Colubrina californica or related! No data or photos yet in our database but check out some of these photos:

One of the volunteers said the owner did not remember, it had been there for a long time. Shrug!
I may try emailing her.

Oh Boy! Save seeds! I could stop buying my coffee at Costco and start my own little plantation! It really is a pretty plant.

Colubrina is in the Rhamnaceae. Searching on Rhamnaceae flowers turns up a number of plants with that kind of flower structure. Looks like this might be a good lead.

That sure does look like it! nodding Hurray!
She did have a hand out list of some of the plants and Rhamnus californica -coffeeberry- was listed but didn't match at all so I never searched further..

Thanks, but it was your Colubrina that sowed the seeds as it were and I just searched under Rhamnaceae following that lead. Hurray!
