My mum gave it to me about five years ago. It's now about 2m at the tallest point. The leaves have a very strange pungent smell when you rub them. The little pink flowers appeared about a week ago.

I tried an online plant identifier but no luck.

I think that's a Viburnum × bodnantense, my guess is that it's 'Dawn'. If so, it flowers in mid winter, giving you a beautiful etherial lot of pink blossom.

Thank you so much, holly - the name Viburnum definitely rings a bell. I can't believe both my mum and me forgot what it was!
