    It looks like a Philadelphus, they are often called 'mock oranges'. Not sure which variety though.

    The way the shrub grows, it may be Heptacodium Miconioides. Sometimes called Seven Son Flower tree.

    Definitely Heptacodium miconoides...leaf veins very distinctive.
    Lovely flowers and flaking bark.
