    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,

    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.

    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. :-D

    I should have said; the bush is evergreen.

    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.
