    I need a better pic. I could actually see it being all three that have been mentioned. The pictures shows a Red tint on my on my computer which would make me think Loropetalum or Barberry. But if they do not have thorns then I would rule out the Barberry. In my area the Loroletalums do not have that dense of branch structure on the interior. Now if the areas that look to have a Red tint are actually more Brown then I would say Dwarf Yaupons, because of the very dense interior branch and leaf structure. Like I say, I would need a better pic or see them to be for sure, but the tight and dense branch and leaf structure on the interior makes me think these are Dwarf Yaupons with freeze damage on the outer more tender leafs.

    You know you are right. I am sorry for the damn thing. And I must admit after looking at this picture again decided that it can be one of the following

    ...........ah screw it this pic sucks. Ive seen frost bitten boxwoods looks sim to this. This is S car. and it looks as if it is not a loropetalum. It still looks like a crimson barberry.So what ever.

    I do business in fla and in this state I am confinced that its soo transient customers come and go. They leave stay for while rent out and go and come back or never at all.Frack em. Frack em all. I am sooo sick of these ones that say "Havent seen my LAWN GUY or worse LAWN BOY? WTF Kiss my ass man. You disrespectful little crapper from way up north loving the friggin Patriots craphole. They go thru one lcc after another and no one can please their ass. Good for a couple Months maybe. We make most of the money landscaping for older people settling in on what retirement is suppose to be and letting go of some cash they want to spend before they die. They ask me "How long will it take to grow I only have soo much time" I go over and beyond for these people since most of them have paid the price of freedom and survived to spend the last days of their lives here in sunnyass Florida. For now its what have you done for me lately? We work in 104 heat index in Sept. I say take your sorry yankee ass back where you came from and stay there since migration south requires a little more tack and stay. Welcome to Florida slow down and take it easy.
