Holly-leafed Sweetspire.  Awesome evergreen shrub not unlike an effete Garrya in habit and flower but that is perhaps an unfair portrayal.  This has grown for decades in the Arboretum in Seattle as a fine free-standing shrub.  It really shines as a wall plant with a natural lax habit and the 10"-12" green-white scented flower tapers are fantastic in summer.
