Obsessed with finding out name of shrub I saw
I was camping in the Highlands/Cashiers area this past weekend. I was driving down Highway 64, which is too curvy and narrow to just suddenly pull off to take a picture, and I kept seeing a couple of beautiful shrubs that I would love to know the names of. The most eyecatching one is a bush with fairly dark green non-shiny leaves and white flowers blooming above the leaves-branches. The branches arched out gracefully. The flowers appeared to be almost dogwood-like but clustered all along the top of the branches..boy, they were beautiful.
The other was a fairly narrow, columnar shrub with lavender flowers clustered at the end of the branches. I stopped at one nursery and they did not have either one. I know these won't grow where I live but I just want to know what they were.
