Boxwood of some variety but could not say for sure which one.

The picture does look like a boxwood. But one of the varieties of Walters Viburnum (can't remember which one) can look pretty similar in pictures.

I was getting a laugh out of someone arguing with me about a plant ID. He brought a branch and thought it was Japanese boxwood, but it was actually groundsel tree. No matter how much I insisted, he would not believe me.
