Hi everyone!
I got this shrub at a local nursery, but it doesn't have a tag anywhere on it. It's darker at the bottom and gets lighter as it goes up. It's not flowering, and the leaves have a rough feel to it. Any ideas?

Looks like a nice plant. I`m sure someone here will know. Was it on sale? No tag and all should get a few coins off the price. Doesn`t always work that way Smiling

lol I'm sure it was "on sale" her prices are always super low, and she doesn't speak English well, so I don't ask too many questions. Her selection is always amazing!

I agree with Elaeagnus. Be careful where you plant it as the plant can grow HUGE rather quickly. Some have thorns (or pseudo-thorns; I know 'coz I stepped on one, ouch!) and some have tasty berries for jelly if you can get them before the birds.
