My neighbour has a shrub, its about 4foot high with lovely white 20 leaf flowers on which burst from a furry catkin like bud. does anybody know what it is called,



It could be magnolia? but not sure about the 20 leaf flowers, do you mean 20 petals? :^) not sure if these have started opening yet, also camellias are all opening now there flower is similar to a rose

Most likely magnolia, but the description is confused - 20 petals for flowers, or 20 leaves in a composite leaf, not white? A photograph would be really useful...

Yes it will be a "Magnolia Stellata" Daisy, I have noticed they are all bursting out just now,not sure about 20 petals but they have a lot and look just lovely.

I was going to say magnolia stellata too . A lovely thing, and it doesn't get big like the other magnolias.
