Hi All,
I am new here. I was wondering if someone could possibly ID the corner plant in this photo. Also the orange/yellowish ones in the front. They are probably very common as its part of a very basic landscape package for our new home. I would like to possibly transplant some things here and switch out with other things in the future and I hope to id some of these so I can look them up to see what they will grow into. Also are the ones in the back boxwoods?
Any help is much appreciated!!

EDIT** Added two new closeups.

Are the front ones Nandinia domestica Firepower or "The Sacred Bamboo"??

I think Nandina is correct, but I don't recognize the taller plants.

Welcome!
If you could take a few moments to complete your profile page we would know the location; that might be helpful when answering questions.

Can you please take some photos of the plants in the back so we can better see the leaves. Thank You!

Agree on nandina...

Sadly, nothing that I like....

I can't really see it well enough to be certain, but the "corner one" might be Osmanthus x fortunei.

4. Corner plant .....appears to have leaves opposite on the stem.....this would rule out holly.
Pics still not detailed enough to be sure.
Please can you add a pic to clearly show the leaves.

here is closer one of corner.


EDIT :: I think the person that said Osmanthus is correct. Did some searching online and found some very reinforcing evidence. Will have to see if it blooms in spring to be 100% certain.

I think I will mark this as solved thanks all!!
