The first picture is a cutting from a herb that appears to spread. It smells like licorice. Most of the plant has died back, and I'm thinking that maybe the mature leaves are larger, as we have broken buds on several plants in zone 7 now. The second and third picture is a large shrub/tree that I skirted last year when it was full of leaves. It has lots of white flowers on it now, and I'm just curious of the species because its pretty and I would like to use it in future designs. The third and fourth picture is an evergreen shrub that has flower buds forming now The last picture has started flowering in the past 3 weeks, and it is the only stray flower on the site. Thanks for any input!
