This shrub has grown in my side yard since I purchased the property. Neighbors have asked what it is. I do not know. Has beautiful white blooms in the spring. In past years I’ve kept it trimmed to about 6 ft. In the past few years, I’ve let it grow.
What is it?
How tall will it grow?
Is it a shurb or tree?

    Are the blooms fragrant? Are the leaves opposite along the stem?

    The blooms are mostly gone at this point. I don’t recall any fragrance. Yes, the leaves are opposite along the stem.

    Look like mock orange to me, but I’m not really sure.

    I was thinking mock orange as well. If you don’t recall a fragrant bloom it could possibly be a scentless Mock orange http://www.duke.edu/~cwcook/trees/phin.html
