My daughter just bought a new home and this plant is one of the plants on the property. The house is in a new development and this plant seems to be a popular choice of the developer landscaper. I assume it is a native to this Fort Worth area 7a zone and expected to do well in this climate.
My son is law is very curious about what it is.

See below
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Thank you. What a classic old plant. Something my grandmother would have known right away.

I say it is more likely an abelia.
