Hi, I have two really pretty bushes in my garden (established, but new to me). Purple/pink flowers appeared on them in Feb, and the colour seems to have deepened over the month. No leaves or buds yet. Located in part sun/shade. Can anyone help me identify what they are? Many thanks in advance!!

Hi Irina, is the shrub fragrant? One suggestion on social media is Viburnum x bodnantense 'Dawn' Cheers Nicola

Thank you both very much! My plants do not have any scent. Does Daphne mezereum have a scent? Thanks, Irina

Yes this Daphne has a scent, may exude it only at times.
