Plant identification

Crafted4YouJune 14, 2013

We had two of these shrubs in our yard as I was growing up. Recently I have seen them in VA Beach but can't remember the name of them and would like to get some for my yard.
Can someone please tell me the common name for these fragrant plants.

Thank you.

This looks like lilac to me. I design with fragrant plants and shrubs everyday. Check out my website at

Looks like white Indian hawthorn to me. And if you've seen them in Va Beach, that makes me even more certain that's what it is. I have one you can have if you want it :)
