Thank you ...
Looks a bit like Laurel going by the flowers but not sure about the leaf edges being serrated.
Looks like a mahonia to me.
I don't think it's prickly enough to be a mahonia Malcolm (the leaves look sort of hollyish, but the serrated edges aren't spiky). Paula I've never seen a laurel with flowers like that (mind you the laurels I've had have never done anything at all except sit there). The racemes are really quite long and aren't properly out yet.
looks like Itea illicifolia to me.
google it and look at some of the images, just like your plant
Looks like Itea ilicifolia to me one of my favourite s shrubs

Thank you both - twin geniuses! (Genii?) I am so glad it isn't some form of laurel as I have spent so long ripping one out! Thanks again - Sara
