This plant just started growing in my garden a few years ago. I did not plant it, so I'm wondering how it got there and what it is. It is now nearly a metre high, and has lasted frosts and bad winters. It has never had any flowers at all, just glossy evergreen leaves. It looks like a camellia to me, although I'm not sure, as I have never grown one. It is growing in a small sheltered sunny south facing border along with rosemary and lavender. Can anyone please identify for certain, and can it be moved somewhere more appropriate? Thanks for you help.

looks like English laurel, I wish birds would spread camellia seeds, no such luck.

Thank you for that. Camellia was rather wishful thinking. I have just googled English Laurel, and I think I will be digging it up any time soon, as it seems it belongs more in a park than my small back yard.

hi

It could be laurel daphne or spurge daphne. Here they self seed freely from next door. Has sweet smelling flowers and grows to 3 feet.

Just a thought.

regards

Carol
