sounds like 'claradanium? old time shrub
I received a shrub today that the lady said was a "claradanium." She didn't know how to spell it and so that is my best guess, although I can't find anything listed anywhere that is spelled anything like it. It is a large shrub. She has 3 in her yard averaging about 6-8 feet in height. They are a deciduous shrub with somewhat heart shaped leaves that she described as "old-timey" (whatever exactly that means) and she said they get flowers that are purplish w/ whitish. That's all I know. Anyone know what I have? I will try and take a picture of my little guy tomorrow if know one figures it out before then.
