Mystery shrub 2: and can anyone please tell me what this shrub is? I can't find anything quite like it in any of my gardening books. It is flowering now, with very frilly, unscented, round white flowers. It has bright, almost lime-coloured leaves.

I agree, it is lovely. Is your plant flowering now? if it is it could be Exochorda (pearl bush). If it flowers later in the year, it might be a Philadelphus (Mock Orange) Sorry can't be more help.

It might be the pearl bush. the leaves are a very bright yellowy green. there is one in the village just opening.

Hmm, thanks, could be. The buds are certainly pearl-like!

It certainly looks like the pictures I've seen of Pearl Bush, including obviously being a member of the Rose Family.
