I am looking to identify a tree, leaves similar to Eastern Redbud, but OPPOSITE, not alternating. Similar size to dogwood, flowers unknown. HELP??

I wouldn´t say that the leaves in this picture are opposite. They look alternate in a compact branch. I can see two or three pairs of leaves coming from different points. I´d say that this is a dense branch with alternate leaves that look opposite due to the compact lenght between them. (the leaves´ shape match with the ones in plant above)

But then again, I could be wrong :^P
