Identifying plant with missing label.

Can anyone tell me what this plant is please? Because I have 3 of these, I have obviously intended growing them. I don't know why or where the labels have gone.

 They are in two litre size pots, so I will have also repotted them up at least once-very odd.

The younger stems seem to be a bit reddish in colour.

    They might be Mock Orange shrubs, Philadelphus.

    I was going to suggest hydrangea for the first one but I'll bow to superior knowledge.
    The last photo doesn't look quite the same leaves as the first.

  • I remember taking some cuttings of Philadelphus. I think it was last year. Thank you for solving the mystery everyone. ✋
