I was walking behind the seafood resturant today and there is this amazing bush. It needs pruning and I'm wondering if it would root from a cutting. It's a hardwood, the leaves look like "snow on the mountain" and it has pale pink and white blooms. Does this sound at all familiar to anyone?

Thank you for the link that was a good one. I bookmarked it so I can refer back to it.

That sure is a pretty plant.

Maybe it was the spelling again Bill. I'm just having the hardest times with my searches right now. Or maybe I was to specific. I'm a lousy file clerk under the best circumstances anyway.
