What is this plant?
It's a deciduous shrub about five foot tall, four foot spread. It has a single "trunk". The shrub is over twenty years old but it's never been pruned. The leaves turn red in autumn then drop off. The leaves are just over one inch long by three-quarter wide, with a slightly pointed tip. The upper surface is slightly furry. The flowers appear at the beginning of April and have five white petals on a trumpet shape. The trumpet part is pink. There are about five "bunches" of seven flowers at the end of each "twig". They are very fragrant.
