        Is it Eleagnus maculata in its variegated form?

          Don't think it's Eleagnus Maculata as the leaf is more white than yellow in the variegation, we have two plants them, the leaf above is smaller than the Eleagnus

          T'was just a guess. We have one which is flowering now and the scent is wonderful.

            Just been looking through RHS Encyclopedia, the closeist i could find is Rhamnus Argenteovariegata, but that has yellow flowers and the one we have has white flowers

              Beat me to it once again. Odd, I have been looking at ours today and wondering what it was. No flowers though.
