New House - identify tree



Evening, we've moved into a new house and we are struggling to identify this tree.  My friend thinks it's a Rock Rose.  Please help, it's driving us crazy!  I'm told the flowers are small white ones.

    It is not a rock rose (Cistus). Lots of vague possibilities going through my head - Daphne laureola (wrong size), Aucuba (non-spotted; not right), Camellia (flowers wrong), Pieris, Prunus lusitanica, Rhododendron, Ilex, Viburnum, Stransvesia - none of them fit. Could really do with flowers and/or fruit. There might be some old fruit (could be berries) on the ground from last year; even if brown and wizened, it might help...

        Yes, please do.


        Another thought occured to me today: Myoporum laetum.

        There are some similarities in leaf, and it has small white flowers.

        But I'm not sure it would be hardy enough to survive long enough to grow to that size in the UK (it is rated in the old zone-9, meaning down to -5C).

        I'm just thinking out loud really; I don't think it is close enough to yours.
