Small evergreen shrub

Photo: flotsam50

This small, evergreen shrub bears rose-pink flowers in late spring. Its leathery, oval-lanceolate leaves are bright green, very slightly shiny, and measure about one to one and a half inches in length (not to be confused with the few leaves of Daphne odorata 'Aureo-marginata' which are visible in the upper right). It seems to be slow-growing, but this is an older plant so it could be just running out of steam. Please help me to identify it.
