Parrotia persica.
Commonly known as Persion ironwood.
A beautiful winter flowering shrub/small tree.
The added bonus is the wonderful colour of the leaves in the autumn and the flaking /interesting bark.

Top of the class again , it is looking good so far, hoping for a good display this year,its amazing how many people walk by and never notice the flowers, I was let out last week but very little in flower except for the glasshouses thought that house plants might be a little unfair. Ill be back...............
