Mystery Shrub

This plant grows in abundance around the local area, and likely elsewhere too. I have yet to determine just what it is, but it appears to grow in large, bushy forms anywhere that it can take root.

Over the last several weeks it has taken its turn blossoming among the other plants, as these are next to the cottage. The little white flowers have a faint, delicate scent which seems a good attractant for the bumbles.

Perhaps the fruit (if there is fruit) will aid me in identification. Any guesses?


  1. I haven't got the foggiest clue, but the flowers look like tiny orchids. In the distant picture it almost looks like bamboo. It's probably some invasive species like scotchbroom, but far more attrative. :D

  2. I was thinking the same thing. I'll be sure to let you know when I figure it out.
