 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?

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

 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

sotongeoff

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?

figrat

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

Alternative guess-could be escallonia??

Lilylouise

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)

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...
