South Georgia Question
I am relaying what my mom has told me. She wants the name of a bush. I'm searching to find the name of the bush from what she has told me about it. She grew up in the Western part of South Georgia as a Share Croppers Daughter. Her mom was given a bush. She remembers this bush because it had a very nice fragrance. (And it was not a Lilac) She said share croppers would plant these at home steads and leave them. The bush has a burgundy brownish bloom. The blooms look like the honeysuckle bloom and it covers the whole bush profusely. She said that they would get a hanky and fill it full of these blooms and carry it in their pockets all day. This was a special treat for their girlfriends when they came to their house for a visit. Mom has tried to think of the name of the bush. Do any of you know the name of this type of bush? Hopefully when you say it, it will jog my mom's memory. I am going to have to jot this down in the journal I have been keeping about my mom.
