Is it Skimmia…?


Skimmia japonica Thunb. ??


Interesting.

I have been thinking.
Have ruled out most evergreens in UK
Sorry but never seen a Skimmia in UK that looks like this.
Nothing seems to fit with any Skimmia that i know.

It might be an Ilex species or cultivar.


Sorry but I do not think it can be Ilex.

Mystery flowers have 5 petals.
While Ilex have just 4.
