Someone was throwing it out (my neighbour has the shrub now) and she gave me this cutting.

No idea what it is - possibly a free montedhendron? (Sorry about the spelling).

Some buds starting to form, but may be a while until we see any flowers.

I couldnt find anything on the net by that name, could it be a bay .

..I think you mean Fremontodendron... might be that...stems should be bristly which they appear to be...

I thought maybe the shrub suggested was fremontodendron from the name.

but 2 foot is a bit small

Thanks all.

it is that name I was thinking of - but add autocorrect to my abysmal spelling and you get Free Montedhendron 


Thanks again x

I can't cope with auto correct and that predictive thing

Me neither, I turned it off.

Completely wrong leaf for that free thingymabob, they have trilobal leaves

Could it be a camelia? Dosent look shiny enough i spose

I looks familiar but..............

Definitely not a fremontodendron. Looks more similar to a camellia leaf. A picture of the actual shrub would help a lot.

Looks like my weeping fig?

It looks a little like a holm oak, or garrya elliptical? Hard to tell!
