What are the leaves like?

Hi Lessa,  I've added one photo of the top of the leaves and one photo of the underside of the leaves.  They are about 2cm to 6cm long. Thanks for your feedback.  Mardon

That's a Labrador Tea... leaves are very distinctive by their "fuzz" and they way they curl under at the edges. I always use the leaves to ID this one, so I couldn't quite place it by the flowers.
