Please can anyone name this shrub for me?
It looks like Abelia leaves but fluffy flowers, much beloved by bees.
This shrub about 8ft. tall.

Reminds me of Fothergilla.

Thanks, all. I'll look these up.

If it is Myrtle then surely it is blooming very early & so much flower too. Is it in a greenhouse? It will be ages before my M. Communis blooms.

Fever, it was in a (large) Open Garden near Exeter and I was bowled over by it. I don't think it would be happy where we are.
