    "Bring to me a Shrubbery"....Monty Python and The Holy Grail

    Small weedy looking trree, 5 feet tall and smaller, grayish bark, oval blunted leaves 1 1/2 to 2 inches long, creamy blossoms about same size, no smell to speak of? GFB suggested dogwood but it ddoes NOT resemble the Virginia dogwood I knew growing up- next he asked possibly persimmon?? All my native plant ID books are back in Palm beach County- This is growing in pure sand near Lake Placid FL.

    Dogwoods have opposite leaves. Asiminas have alternate leaves, and the leaves are aromatic when crushed.
