shrub ID help, sory no photo, plant got cut down!
I konow that it's very hard to ID w/out a photo, but I smelled this flower on a shrub and went back a week or so later to take a photo, and the whole plant was cut to the ground! It had leaves and size (about4' tall) similar to common hydrangeas, dark green, with woody stems. The flowers were ball clusters of 100 or so small (1/4 in) star shaped dark pink flowers. The whole cluster was about 3 inches diameter. The petals felt very waxy and stiff, like the globe could be grabbed and not lose any of it's shape. I smelled it in the middle of the day, and it was very fragrant, sweet.I live in the sf bay area. Any guesses would be great! Thanks a ton, Berklady
