I'm trying to ID this plant. Any ideas?
Looks like a type of lorapetelum to me, at least the darker leaves do.
Looks like Privet
That was my original thought.............a privet gone awry......LOL!
But the leaves look a bit too big................I Dunno.........
I just photographed my crape myrtle last week, and it's extremely similar to that.
Maybe it did not bloom.
Or, it could be another plant.
Is there a loropetalum that is just green? I've only seen the reddish leaf one.
Can't say with 100% certainty.
Crape myrtle is like a staggered opposite-leafed arrangement. The leaves are not totally opposite - slightly, slightly staggered - but so close to opposite it does not look at all like alternate leaves or branches.
Im almost positive its not a lorapetalum. Im about 95% sure its a crepe Myrtle that just didn't bloom
Heres a pic of a Crepe Myrtle
Pretty sure it is Privet. Pics. can be deceiving. I am betting the leaves are smaller than they appear in the pic.
This looks like privet. Most crepe myrtles do not have a shiny leaf and the privet leaves can have a slightly pointed distal end. On ligustrum the stems are angular also, the picture shows a smooth rounded stem.
