I've seen this one several times and I like it, but have no idea what it is called. It grows in northern California. Please advise!

My snapshot of the plant

One candidate for this might be Woolly Viburnum. Clearly it is a woody shrub, opposite leaf arrangement with recurved leaf and perhaps reminds us of viburnums. Native of China, just a hop skip and jump across the Pacific from California. The rosy colour of the juvenile leaf shoots might be due to unusually dry conditions combined with good amounts of sun.
