Unknown Shrub/tree
« on: June 09, 2008, 10:04:40 AM »
Another unknown shrub in my friend's garden 3 hours north of here.....

This one had got to over 4 metres tall before being decapitated by a falling branch.  It had never flowered at that stage, but has reshot well.  I am doubting there is enough information in the pictures for an ID, but I thought I'd ask.  It is quite distinctive in the leaves, but probably not enough without flowers etc.  I've included a longer shot (sorry about the Agapanthus head remains in front) and a closeup to show the leaves and the stem arrangement etc.  I have no idea how large it has to be before flowering, so do not know whether it is a shrub or tree.  No nurseries has has taken cuttings to has known what it was.

Any takers?

Thanks in anticipation.
