Hi, can anyone identify this please? The leaves are very like the Red Robin. I thought it might be Wine and Roses but the flowers are white. Any help you can give would be great. Thank you.

Very hard to see with the size of that pic LyndaT. But it looks a bit like Abelia to me.



Although its leaves are not at all shaped like the Red robins. Any help?
