Ligustrum japonicum (Oleaceae) is one of the most common plant, naturalized in the state. Flowers pleasantly fragrant.
Very commonly planted in Kashmir also.
Bush with white buds seen on 24th June.
Is it some Deutzia species?
No idea. These plants are all new for me. Thanks for the suggested id. Hope to get it validated.
Does the flower have a strong perfume? The fragrance is a happy
memory from my childhood.
It looks to be a type of Ligustrum.
Possibly L. lucidum or L. japonicum, but there are other varieties.
Thanks for the suggested id.
Unfortunately, I did not smell the flowers due to lack of time. Pictures were taken just passing by.
Appears more closer to images at Ligustrum japonicum
