Default Can you identify this autumn flowering tree?

I saw this in someone's garden today and was seriously impressed.

I thought it might be a cherry but the leaves are not particularly cherry-like, and it's too early for the Autumnalis variety.

Any ideas?

Eucryphia x nymansayensis and in all probability it is the cv. 'Nymansay'.

I wouldn't definitively call it autumn flowering, though because here
it was flowering a few weeks ago and now is completely over. I suppose
it must depend a great deal on which part of UK you live in. It's
certainly a big bee attractant, ours was absolutely covered in them for
days on end.

I'd go for Eucryphia spp. (probably nymansensis) It would have been beautifully fragrant if you could have got a sniff !!!

Thank you very much for the ID.

It's a very beautiful small tree, really stands out at this time of year, and no doubt would be very fragrant, if I could smell it!
