DaisyI said:If its a Bay Laurel, breaking a leaf and smelling would tell you for sure.
It reminds me of an oak tree.
porkpal said:Cherry Laurel, perhaps?
porkpal said:I agree. Does it get much sun?
Yaupon Holly (Ilex vomitoria)
Might get red berries within a few years
A native of south Texas
What scent would i be...smelling... for?
kittriana said:Bay leaf has no smell to me, shrug. Definitely not yaupon, quercus has the leaves circling a stem, did it survive snowmeggeddon outside? It reminds me of a citrus but has no thorns, I cannot actually say except it isn't chinese privet. The expert you guys need is @ViburnumValley
kittriana said:flowering almonds were offered down here one year in the nurseries, zone 4 thru 9 would explain the cold tolerance, don't remember the exact name, the leaf doesn't resemble a cherry like Nanking cherry tho. From what I hear, the cherry laurels bit the dust like citrus did. So, no id, but a few ideas?
