Hello there, I have just joined the site, it looks great and I am sure to get some really good tips and advice here.
If I may be so bold to ask my first question....I bought a small shrub at a garden fete some years ago, it was unamed. Since planting it out it has turned into a magnificent bush but I just dont know what it is called. It looks just like a Melianthus Majoris, with the serrated leaves, spread out in just the same way, except, right now it is in bud and the flowers are not a dark purple colour, but they are white spikes. The butterflies and bees seem to love it. can anyone help me identify it please? Have looked at loads of pics of Melianthus Majoris, however none of them showed white flowering spikes. Thanks for the help.
