Is this a viburnum, please? We have just moved into a house with an untamed garden and I am not sure if this is a viburnum.
Thanks for the answers. I've added a close up.

On plant Viburnum




No, it's a Skimmia I think, though a close up would be better

i can see why now the skimmia and viburnum according to which one you look at are very similar
According to my book its a Skimmia Japonica .Probably "Rubella"(male)

I thought the flower buds of rubella were very red, these dont look so on the photo.

Definitely Skimmia japonica, looks like it may need a shot of sequestrene iron tonic to help those leaves go greener...
