Hello all,

This plant came up in the flower bed this summer and I thought it interesting looking, so let it grow. Rather than search blindly through photos on the interwebs I thought I'd ask you experts for an opinion first. I'm confident someone here knows.

Thanks in advance,

The foliage looks quite glossy similar to that of Camellia. Did it suddenly appear from nowhere or was there an old root which it may have sprung from over a couple of years?

Came outta nowhere. Also, the stem(s) is/are green and the pics of Camellias look to be more brown or woody. Thanks for the trying.

Another thought, is it Prunus laurocerasus, syn, Cherry Laurel?

I don't think the leaves are pointed enough to be Cherry Laurel. Still thinking...

Do you think it could be Hibbertia scandens? Does it have a yellow flower?

It hasn't flowered yet. I hope it is. Those flowers are pretty.
