Looks like Japanese snowball Viburnum plicatum 'Mariesii'' or Viburnum plicatum tomentosum "Summer Snowflake"

Sorry Michael but I don't think you are right with Cornus florida. The leaves you show are toothed and matt whereas C. florida has shiny, untoothed leaves.
Mind you, I can't offer an alternative to Viburnum. I am confused. Confused Confused

It's not Cornus florida or any of the dogwoods which have much more shiny leaves and much bigger individual flowers not borne in clusters such as this Viburnum.

I have attached a photo of the Autumn colour on Cornus florida unfortunately I don't have any photo of the flowers.

I am not 100% certain which species it is however I would suggest it is Viburnum carlecephalum or perhaps Viburnum Eskimo.

Stunning flowers and Autumn Colour.

michael, I realise this is an old post. But the way the leaves are sort of curled reminds me very much of Cornus. Possibly Cornus kousa. Please can you help by adding pics when it flowers.

I am pretty sure it is a Cornus, and Cornus Kousa does ring a bell regarding this shrub.will post a pic when it flowers.

I went to have a look at ours today. The 4 bracts are already there with the small dome of flowers in the centre. I have also taken a pic of a leaf and added a trimmed version of your pic.
