I can't see the picture very clearly, but it looks like one of the escallonias to me - there are different varieties/colours and they can make very good hedges.
Could you get a better photo of the leaves and the flowers? Also some idea of whether it has thorns or smooth bark, if it is evergreen and which country it is in?
Is it a camellia?
hopefully this gives a better view
there are no thorns
flowers are pink
assume its an evergreen as it has not dropped its leaves by now
in surrey, england not abroad
Here is a googled picture of an escallonia - the slight jagginess of the leaf edges looks familiar - so I think Dove could well be right
..looks as though someone has been pruning a Camellia at the wrong time of year...and pruned off all the flower buds...one or two are showing..one in flower...but not much more... it appears to have been sheared off fairly recently...
..people put these plants in strange places...
Looks more Camellia-like to me too. If you look at the size of the bricks - the foliage looks too big to be Escallonia.
I don't know acid soil plants but I don't think it's an escallonia. Are the bright pink bits flowers? A close up of one of those might help, at least to get the family likenesses established
here's a close up....
