    I bought this bush at a local greenhouse about 4 years ago.  It’s an amazing thing!  The flowers it gets around mid July are pink and smell delicious!  The bees, butterflies and hummingbirds are loving it!

    My problem, you ask?  I want another and I cannot, for the life of me, remember what it is called.  I recall it had a tag on it when I bought it that said “hummingbird bush” but that’s all I have to go on.

    It is currently about 3-4ft tall, blooms in mid July here in western PA and has such sweet smelling flowers.

    There are two pictures that can be viewed at https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10153089660018136&l=fc892c3c4c

    and

    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

    It looks like some sort of Buddleja to me. Maybe google it up and choose “images” and see if any there are ID’d?

    It’s beautiful

    Sorry, meant to also add that buddleja are sometimes called “butterfly Bush” so maybe that’s where you are getting that name from?

    I should know this but can’t think of it.  When somebody tells you I’ll be saying “Oh yeah, that’s it”

    There is a plant called Hummingbird Bush but that’s not it in your picture.

    Hmm, not what I thought.   So I can’t say “Oh Yeah, that’s it”  LOL

    I just googled it.  I may have to look for some of this.
