Sorry, too blurry to make out.

Quercia Ilex - Holm Oak? Could be wrong...have a look and see what you think 

04/05/2014 at 21:00

Quercus not Quercia....Stupid autocorrect!

I don't think that's an evergreen is it Michuk. A bit of extra info is always useful. 

colour of flowers?

It is very blurred though and hard to see

I hope its not a tree - its too big for where it is. 

 

FYI - i just taken on this garden so trying to work out what everthing is. I am new to gardering.

Can you get a clearer pic of that one Michuk?  I can either have tiny or blown up and blurred.

I can see what's probably Lonicera nitida 'Baggeson's Gold'  in the bottom RH corner

I wondered pittosporum but maybe the leaves are too wrinkled?

A young Cornus kousa?

does this close up help?

I'm not familiar with Cornus kousa (Bamboogie's suggestion), except at a distance but I think a cornus of some sort is likely.

It may be a seedling, some do seed around and it seems too close to a wall to have been planted. I don't think it's a climbing plant.

not the quercus or pittosporum

Yes, agree with Nut - it's a Cornus.

That's a much better photo!

It has flower buds forming so not a Cornus kousa, they have bracts.

So i'd go for a type of Cornus alba.
