I have several shrubs growing in the yard that I noticed had white buds but never seen a flower on it until now. I am color blind, reds and greens, so I hope my description is correct. The leaves are darker green on top, pale underneath. There are 3 to 5 long (2”) leaves on alternating stems. There are berries growing on separate stems than the flowers and some appear to be red while others green to me. This is the first time I have seen a flower bloom on this shrub. I can take more pictures of the trunk, leaves or whatever you may need to identify this shrub. Thank you.

Thank you so much Silversurfer. I searched for weeks and never saw one photo like the ones you linked to. I guess you need to know what search words to use.

It helps when you know, grow and love the plants.
In this case the leaves were the clue.

Hi Tewhano, Welcome!

I agree with Silversurfer, that's a pretty Heavenly Bamboo (Nandina domestica) It gets those pretty white blooms in spring, followed by gorgeous red berries and beautiful leaf color in the fall.

Thank you for your responses. I am a novice photographer who loves nature. I just got my first DSLR camera and because I love nature most of my photos are of flowers and insects. I mainly got the camera to take photos for my website when I go hiking. When I lived in New Zealand I planted a garden every time I moved, which was often. I miss the feeling I got when the first flower blooms from a seed I planted. Time to get back into gardening I reckon.
