It's difficult to see the flowers and leaves enough to say for sure.

From what I can see, the flowers look to have 4 petals?

Some leaves look to be alternate, some opposite. Can you take closer shots of the flowers and leaves?

All I can come up with at the moment is something like Cornus racemosa..

I don't think that is Cornus racemosa (the form of the flower "head" is not right), but you could favor us by cutting off a branch of this clearly vigorous plant and take it somewhere you can take clear images of the flowers, branches, stems, leaves, leaf arrangement along the stems, etc.

I wonder if it is some sort of freakish Euonymus sp. that I don't see down south.

I think the leaves are serrated. No Cornus with those that I can find if I'm seeing that right.

Do the leaves turn red in the fall? Following ViburnumValley's lead to Euonymus alatus: Burning Bush (Euonymus alatus)

Boy, if Euonymus alatus flowered like that, it would never be eliminated as an invasive species in this country...

Burning Bush flowers much less prolifically than this plant, and with less exuberantly sized leaves.

Hurray! I tip my hat to you. John (ViburnumValley) suggested it was a Euonymus of some kind, so I just did some sleuthing to try and figure out which it could be.

Just a thought, since there were originally no pictures of this plant in the database (thank you for adding one) it would be great if you could also add the close-ups showing the leaf and flower detail. Thank You!

Hurray! Thumbs up The really close ones that show the serrated leaf edges and the purple anthers (apparently a distinguishing feature) would be useful also, hint hint Big Grin
