roy, thanks. been looking through some books i got here the picture in one of the books, acuba jaonica (spotted laurel, not related), was the one that most closely resembled it. didn't know they hold their leaves, from reading bout it, sounds like it's a pretty versital plant. as for pruning, the ones i been trying to id are on a new account, as for pruning, looks like they been done with shears (trimmer), there forgiving but not sure if that's the way to go though. anyway, thanks, need to read up on it, a good looking plant.

Could be the leaf in the photo on the left side appears to have scale insects. This sways me to think it could be in the Euonymus species. It could be something in the Silver king name as I don't see this variety in our nurseries anymore because of the scale problems as the Golden euonymus.

so today i'm at this one yd, what do notice, same plant. hve been at this place for over 5 yrs now and now i notice it. although they let this one grow out (way bigger) and doesn't have the redish stems and deeper green leaves as the other ones, with are cut like shrubs do.

I agree that although acuba looks very similar, I'm, pretty sure it is not. The leaves on acuba are generally much larger (from what I can tell in the photo) and the stem systems look completely different than anything I have seen on acuba. I have quite a bit of acuba at my own home. gunsnroses I think has it right.

From the picture it's pretty hard to tell. My first thought was Elaeagnus of some sort. Are the the leaves silver on the backside?

I found an Acuba on one of the properties. It has green stems with leaf pattern more of a rosette. This plant (above photo) has red stems and leaves grow more like a lilly. Gunsnroses is more right as a Dappled Hakura Willow.
