We call this English Dogwood, and to be honest, I have never thought about looking it up to see if that's the right name or not. My wife brought home a sprig of it that a patient gave her and it has thrived.
Anything that's pretty and thrives here is my kind of plant.
I assume it's not native, but even though it spreads gently, it's not invasive and we only plant it around the house where exotics are allowed. You can jerk a piece out of the ground, put it where you want it, and it will reward you with rapid growth and clouds of white flowers.
Tough and pretty...
