Abeliophyllum distichum roseum?
We moved a planting of Abeliophyllum last year from a bed adjacent to the stairway below the Davidia. It was just in a location that needed to look good 12 months a year and it really only was nice for two weeks. Abeliophyllum is a very early flowering shrub and when I checked it out this week one of the plants was distinctly pink. Others were the typical white of the species so I wonder if there isn't just regular variation throughout a population that will give you the pink form once out of ?20 plants.
