Based on your description, this would be Raphiolepsis. It is considered winter hardy into zone 7 or 8, depending on the specific variety. Your zip code places you in zone 7B or the warmer part of zone 7. Depending on your microclimate you should be able to grow it easily. A good indication would be if your neighbors are able to grow it, and if your local nursery stocks it. Here is more information about it.

The Monrovia on-line plant descriptions include many different varieties of this plant along with photos. I hope this answers your question.
