    Are those dried flowers on them?? If so, when was the pic taken??? Looks sort of like a Rhododendron sp., but it is realy hard to tell from this far away.

    Need close ups. Azaleas? Indian Hawthorns? Can't tell.

    It's a rhododendron, sheared to look like a ball. What a shame....

    Th picture is a bit misleading


    can be just about anything

    Skimea
    Holly
    Hawthorne
    Azalea
    Inkberry even
    Euonymous
    And others

    Appreciate quizing us. Rather you take a cutting to your local nursery

    Glan - look at the photo again. Towards the bottom, you can see the distinct leaf of a rhodo. But you are also correct, the photo is kind of misleading......

    Green, with brown spots. You should do something about those spots. Or get a camera that can do close-ups.

    the leaves look too small to be a rhodo. Most rhodos that i have seen dont get that dense.
