Does anyone know the name of this shrub? It's about the size of forsythia,
rounded and graceful, and is blooming along with forsythia in Boston now.
Blooms are light pink, in opposite clusters along the branch tips, 4 petals
with a small yellow center, about 1/2 inch long. Dainty but with impact. I'm
sorry I don't have a photo.

Maybe abeliophyllum distichum? There are some pinkish varieties.
