Unknown plant

Any idea what this is, it appeared about 2or 3 years ago and I know I didn't buy it. It's evergreen with no flowers . Every year I think I'll pull it up but it gets to live another year. 

Is it worth keeping ? image

    Looks like a Daphne, probably too young to flower

    I agree, a nice find and worth waiting for flowers which should be highly fragrant.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    That's a nice surprise , glad I didn't pull it up . How long do you think before it might flower?  I haven't a clue how it got there. 

    Thanks for your replies .

    Hard to say how long, it's already branched a bit. I don't know which one it is but lean towards D. laureola, a native plant. A nice shrub for a shady spot
