Shrub / tree ID

Does anybody know what this plant is? I planted it from seed about 10 years ago. I think I got the seed from a tree at Westonbirt Arboretum....! It's in a pot and I don't know if I should be thinking of repotting or not. It seems to be doing fine in the shade under my cherry tree and has some lovely pink flowers. It's only about 3' tall.

    PS :- I think it's the cultivar known as 'Red Bells' .

    I agree.
    He calls her the chocolate girl
    Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
    She knows she's the chocolate girl
    Cause she's broken up and swallowed
    And wrapped in bits of silver

    That's a quite exquisite plant.
