This is growing right next to "Total Mystery To Me" but it has smaller (width & length) leaves and a reddish coloring to the leaf stems & stems in general. Photo taken today in north central Florida zone 8/9.

I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

It looks very similar to the Camphor tree on you other thread Ann, on Floridata it states:

Twigs are usually green, but may be tinged with red when young


http://www.floridata.com/ref/c/cinn_cam.cfm

Does this one get more or less light than the other? The leaves don't look to have wavy edges either, but the other one only had some so maybe that comes with age. Crush the leaves and you will find out.

Actually the two are so close together that the branches cross each other & they receive equal lighting.

I will crush the leaves of both when next we go out there. Now why didn't I think to crush leaves & scratch twigs & sniff when I was there? Still learning to remember the details. Blinking

It's a shame it's invasive, seems to be happy where it is. You don't have a use for camphor? Hilarious!

Not THAT much of it! In Fl. invasive takes on a whole new meaning. Anything invasive in this state tends to swallow everything in it's path WHOLE in a matter of years. Too bad. It's really pretty.
