Southeast TN, this is about a 5' tall deciduous shrub. It's covered in these white camellia like flowers. No strong fragrance. Please help ID

Maybe Philadelphus inodorus or Rhodotypos scandens. Or a white Chaenomeles.

Here it is too early for Philadelphus and probably Rhodotypos, but maybe hotter weather there brings them on sooner. Otherwise deciduous, white and camellia-like would best fit Stewartia - but this is another later-blooming type (June etc.), at least in my area.
