Thankyou Flowerchild, will definitely have to go and hunt one down, I'm probably due for a visit to Kew  anyway, last time I went it was only 1d to get in!

Thanks again all, I'd be absolutely delighted if it was a Davidia, it would have pride of place in the middle of my front lawn! But, as obviously not so CluelessGardener says the leaves don’t seem to match entirely, they are certainly hairless so maybe var. vilmoriniana? Not sure. The buds look promising though............. 

so I have added a close up.


It was bought in a sale from a National Trust shop and according to the incorrect label it was also grown by them in Devon/Cornwall. My neighbours took the photo and a leaf to Wisley last week and also drew a blank, they just confirmed that it wasn’t a Clerodendrum!

I shall have to go and find a growing specimen.

Thankyou all but it is not a hazel or a hornbeam.

 Has anyone got any ideas as to what this is?

I bought it about 3 years ago as Clerodendrum bungei but it soon became clear that it wasn't. The leaves are quite leathery, it has never flowered and is growing well in my chalky soil.
