imageHi.  I've just bought s shrub from a local shop and it said on the package that it was a white Budlea tree. I've planted it but leaves are not the same as the purple one that  was already in the garden when I moved in. Any help identifying  it would be greatly appreciated. Thankyou

    Do the leaves smell like your blackcurrant?

    It could be a flowering currant, one of those with pink flowers in the spring.
