We had a landscaper install these but now a year later I don't know for sure what he picked from my choices at the nursery. I think it's a rhododendron but not sure and I definitely don't know the cultivar! Blooms in spring and the flowers are white to pale pink. Please help!

Thanks!

No, it's not a rhododendron. It looks like a Choisya ternata.

KJ: Welcome from me too! I agree with the ID; definitely a variety of Indian Hawthorne! http://garden.org/plants/browse/plants/genus/Rhaphiolepis/
