    Is one of the  'Philadelphus' family? (Mock orange)

    It does look like a philadelphus - I have a couple - slightly different flower but I know there are a couple of varieties.  Exquisite smell - I love themimage

    I'm not so sure about Philadelphus. Do you have a photo of the face of any flowers?

    Deutzia is a possibility



    In the sticks near Peterborough

    Yes, Deutzia gracilis I think. The orientation of the flowers and the number of petals said it wasn't a Phili not to mention the thickness of the leaves. Well done nut.

    Maybe wrong but just looked in one of my shrub books and there's about 20 varieties of philadelphus

    Will get a close up of flowers. It is only 3' width & 2' high after many years.

    Thanks for all suggestions image

    I agree with the Deutzia opinion, Deutzia monbeigii

    Oh, I'm not often right but I'm wrong again then because my philadelphus are much more rigorous than that image
