I'm not sure but I find the "name that plant" forum and people who answer there to know everything!

Thank you plantknitter! I haven't seen it bloom but we've only been in the house two weeks. :)

Here's a link to the GardenWeb's Name That Plant forum:

It looks like a viburnum to me, too. The leaves are opposite, consistent with a viburnum. If it is a viburnum, it will more likely than not have a line connecting the base of the petioles (easier to see on older wood). Here's a labeled photo showing the ridge connecting the petioles: http://www.hort.cornell.edu/vlb/key/IMAGES/linelg.jpg

Here's a link to a site that compares viburnum leaves.

And finally, here is a key to viburnum identification, so you can find out which viburnum it is (there are soooo many different species and cultivars):

Good luck with your ID.

Looks like a deciduous Viburnam to me. V. tomentosum?
You will find that it can grow very fast to at least 8 ft.
Beautiful white blossoms and nice Fall color.
