SOLVED: What kind of Abelia do I have?

Hendersonville, TN

2 years ago I bought 8 "white abelia" (no cultivar name on them) - all that the nursery had left. Later found that I needed 4 more to fill the spot involved, So last summer I added 4 "Abelia Grandifloras." Well the "grandiflora" seems to be a more sprawling variety while the "white abelia" (with no cultivar name) seem to be more rounded or compact in shape and have smaller leaves (about the side of cotoneaster). I really need the same variety in these spots. The larger "grandiflora" leaves are also slightly different shade of green. I have been all over looking for just "white abelias" and taken along cuttings,but can't seem to match them. The original nursery has changed hands and has no idea what I have.Anyone have any idea what I need to ask for?

Thanks for the hyperlink! There was a photo, but the
description of the Compacta variety sounds like that might
be the one. I'll ask around for that variety at some of the area nurseries.
