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
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
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.
