 Hello Forum,

I moved into my house in December 2011 and descovered this plant in the undergrowth. So far no flowers have been produced to give me a clue as to what it will be. Can anyone help?

Hi Snoopy.

That's a very small image. Have you got anything a bit bigger?

17/03/2013 at 14:13

Hi, please show the leafes on the basis (old leaf) and the new yellow too.Thanks.

Looks a bit camellia -ish??

17/03/2013 at 16:38

 Same pics but bigger I hope. I thought Camelia but without flowers to help I'm stuck. When do camelias flower?

17/03/2013 at 16:42

Around now-those picture are no better-we cannot zoom in on them

17/03/2013 at 17:01

 I put the iphone down and went back to using the camera. Hope these are better

Although it looks camellia-ish I don't think it is. The shoots are wrong, of course I may be wrong (wouldn't be the first time)

This is my young camellia do you see what I mean?

 I gues  it could be a different variety

17/03/2013 at 17:08

That is better-still think camellia-though my record on ids is not good

My guess the reason it hasn't flowered it has been swamped and not had enough light.

Are you going to keep it-whatever it is?

17/03/2013 at 17:09

Yes they are! I can see why you're thinking camellia, but I'm not sure. Looks very healthy though!


17/03/2013 at 17:11

Alternative guess-could be escallonia??

17/03/2013 at 17:15

A viburnum tinus,maybe ?

Hi - just posted this once -

Have just come back from a GC trip and I aw a shrub (evergreen ) which I think is yours. I was very excited when I saw it, I didn't write down the variety but the genus was Crataegus (hope i've spelt it correctly)

20/03/2013 at 16:45

sorry, Rosa, I've looked at some species of this family, everyone have different leaves fron the bush above. For camellia also the leaves from bush above are to "soft" . I have no idea now...
