    Hey, I hope you guys are bored right now and are spending a lot of time browsing here at lawnsite...

    Anyway... I need some help to ID these shrubs (I haven't been able to do it with the books I have right now). They are all fairly common in my area (Central VA).

    #1 Looks like Camelia... but no flowers

    #5 and #6... these both kinda look like hollies, but I don't think they are.

    #5 is holly
    All these are overgrown, but I'm sure that's why you're there?

    #1 and #4 look like Photinia to me. Plus Photinia has reddish gree buds and Camellia has green buds.
    #2 I agree with yardmanlee...definately quince
    #3 reminds me of Spiraea?
    #5 Maybe English Holly...Ilex aquifolium
    #6 agree with yardmanlee again
    #7 don't know but am looking

    But Camelia has alternate leaves and #7 looks like it has opposite leaves.

    You ought to post the unknowns over on Gardenweb in the name that plant section. http://forums2.gardenweb.com/forums/namegal/
    Those folks know everything...at least some of them do. They may ask for better pics, especially of the hollies but the ones for #7 will be more than sufficient.
