Philadelphus pubescens. Southeast US
Shrub to six feet high, north wall of the restroom behind Inner Quad Building 40, with Cornus capitata, and about six plants near the SE corner of Roble Hall a few yards from Lane L. Fragile, fragrant white flowers in May-June. Philadelphus pubescens is shown on the earliest planting guide to the Inner Quad, which is undated but based on nomenclature I estimate it from the first decade of the 20th century.
