This is in my mom's yard. We saw what mom said was the same bush at Meijer, but of course it was unmarked and the sales clerks knew nothing about their stock. :( On that shrub, the blooms were open, and they had a sort of trumpet shape to them, and a big white ball at the end of a central white stamen (?) in each bloom.

Anyone hazard a guess?

Could be a number of things GW, it will be much easier once the flowers are open. My initial guess would be something like Weigela, they have the white 'ball' on the end of the stigma

Weigela was my first guess, too, with spirea a second (I think spirea has much smaller leaves, though).

It does look like a weigelia.

Trillium only has one bloom at a time. It doesn't make clusters and isn't a shrub. They grow wild here.
