It's maybe 10 feet tall, it is just starting to bloom, and the flowers lasted into the spring last year I think. The pink flowers smell delightful

I'm not real sure but my first thought was it reminded me of Bodnant Viburnum (Viburnum x bodnantense 'Dawn')

Two photos from our database in the above link:

It's just a guess on my part, my eyesight is poor due to cataracts so hopefully others will be along soon to offer suggestions or confirmation. Green Grin!

When I Googled it, all the pictures look spot on. The leaves look exactly as I remember them. I love that it's blooming in the middle of January. Helps a lot with the Pacific Northwest winter blues lol

When it leaves out in the spring, crush a leaf. The unmistakeable scent of green peppers will add confirmation of the positive ID.

'Dawn' is one of the great pleasures of winter in balmier climates, with the fragrant flowers it throws. Here in the chilly Ohio River valley region, it will do the same thing though more often during February. The harbinger of spring, 'Dawn' viburnum belongs in the background of every garden.
