    Is it white rather than the hint of pink in the pic laney? The leaves look like philadelphus. Is it scented? Any small detail you can provide helps with ID

    Don’t make my ill informed mistake before I knew what a spade was all about! I pruned at completely the wrong time and had no flowers at all the following year. Last year however, once it had finished flowering I pruned aprox one third of the old stems right to ground level. It’s now looking full, lush and with what looks like a million flowers (which are just bursting out today).
