Any ideas? Photo taken this week. It smells INCREDIBLE. Currently designing a garden more or less from scratch after house renovations/builders trash the current garden and would love one of these!

Is it some form of viburnum?

Looks like Sarcococca (sp?) also known as Christmas Box. Smells divine!

Skimmia?

Daphne tanguitica.

I think it's a skimmia japonica reevesiana.

Apologies, my phone autocompleted! (I'm growing Daphne tanguitica from seed so have been searching it). I think it's a Daphne, but not tanguitica, as that flowers later.

Oooh, Stiffened is right! Ignore my posts!

I've been wanting to know what that plant is too, some of my neighbours have them. Smells so lovely plus red berries .

I bought a skimmia Japonica rubella yesterday, that also smells amazing ! <not actually sure where I'm going to plant it! >grin
