Is this an Eleagnus?

Powys, Wales Wal

My neighbour called me over to identify a bush that's in flower at the moment. Reason being that it's covered in butterflies and bees so she wants to get another one. It looks like an Eleagnus but seems later than the pink and the flower heads appear to be larger (it's very old judging by the thickness of the stems). Is it a white form of the Eleagnus? p.s.more photos on my blog.




See my comment on your blog, TwH. Definitely not an Eleagnus, probably an Escallonia, as yours is.
