That looks like a Raphiolepis indica 'Snow' common name is Indian Hawthorne. They are pretty much the most common landscape shrub in north Texas.


Welcome to GardenStew from another north Texan,

I think the blooms on this plant are much smaller than on Rhapiolepis. I believe your plant could be Viburnum tinus 'Compactum', seen at the following link.

Thank both of you. We had Indian Hawthorne in Georgia, and I don't think the plant is that. My picture is not all that detailed. I know it is hard to identify.
I tend to think it is the Viburnum tinus 'Compactum', based on the description and photo.
Appreciate your responses.
Lynn

Could you get a closer photo of the leaves? The ones in your photo appear to be shorter and rounder than the Viburnum tinus 'Compactum' leaves.

I have a feeling that it could be Spiraea Nipponica -'Snowmound' (Bridal Wreath, Spiraea.)

Welcome to GardenStew lbeumer from Scotland in the UK. Very Happy

sorry I did not think to say it is an evergreen, at least in this climate. Near Dallas, Texas.

Viburnum tinus, but telling them apart is not easy. I would go for something like V.t. French White, but not sure as the buds ought to have more pink in them.
