Notes:

This is a dicot, at least 6 feet tall. It is growing alongside my house, in part sun. The leaves are 3 inches long, and shaped like a long pointed teardrop. The flowers are small and in bunches, with long thin petals. They are white with a tiny speckling of pink on the outside part. Some of the older branches are so long that they arch out and down.

    I’m curious. Is you home and old home site? I don’t see this shrub often and when I do it is usually around old home places. I am unsure of the identification but I think it’s call Pride of Rochester. http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/showimage/79173/
    This blogger has a nice closeup of the bloom and some interesting info on Deutzia scabra http://digitalflowerpictures.blogspot.com/2007/06/fuzzy-pride-of-rochester-deutzia-scabra.html
    Please let us know!

    Yes! Our house was built in 1830 and this shrub is close to the oldest part. Thank you for your guidance. Your identification looks right on to me. My children and I are mapping the garden, and this was a mystery.
