Help. Thought I had a reasonable knowledge of plants but this one escapes me. Any ideas??

009 705



Looks like Weigela florida.

Unfortunately, the second picture, the close up of the flowers, is blurry, so its hard to tell how many petals there are, but I think its five. I also can't see the typical cluster of stamens in the middle, not enough detail, but I reckon this is a Deutzia of some description, something like D. 'Strawberry Fields'.

Would've said Deutzia of some kind too

Thanks everyone for your help. I have three weigelas and the leaves look different somehow. Thats what stumped me.
Will investigate the deutzia line and put a better picture on here and hopefully that will help!!
Just a bit of extra info.
Shrub is approx 7' tall x 2' wide
Flowers are pink/reddish with yellow centres.
C'mon sherlocks, dr.watson's in trouble. Haha
