Ellishader Escallonia

Last month I was puzzled by a shrub at Ellishader and the consensus after folks looked at my images was that it was probably an Escallonia.  Today on the way to Staffin Island I stopped for another look and it is now flowering. I still think it is an Escallonia but it is clearly not the standard Escallonia rubra var. macrantha. Here is a photo of a piece beside  one of the standard issue:

Later: Mike Wilcox says it looks like looks like Escallonia x langleyensis.
