I thought it was a viburnum but couldn't find the variety. Evergreen, flowering now. Also looked at photos of portuguese laurel but wasn't convinced.

    No idea how it ended up in the "the potting shed".
  • It’s a Hebe but I’ve no idea which variety I’m afraid. Hopefully somebody will know.

    It's at least 2m tall. Didn't realise hebes ever got that big...nor had such large foliage and flowers.
  • There are a few. I have one that’s around 2m
  • The Macrocarpa is a white Hebe and can grow 2.5m in height & spread as does the Salicifolia.

    Leaves on mine look too thin for yours to be Macrocarpa. On closer inspection yours looks more like a Cherry Laurel.

    It's a Cherry Laurel. Prunus Laurocerasus 'Caucasica'.
