Hi there,

Season's Greetings to everyone. I saw this at a National Trust property but have been unable to successfully identify. Could anyone on here tell me what it is?

Ian

I've had a Google and I'm not sure it is. If it helps - it's part of a tree and it must have been a good 20ft high... any other thoughts?

Never seen one with rounded leaves. What bugs me is that I have seen
this plant at Wisley and I may even have it here, but I cant get beyond
laurel or pittisporum

My plant identifier (partner with better memory) says it isn't a
pittisporum.

Laurel?
Rhododendron?
Azelea?
Camelia?

Basically little idea, although it looks very familiar.
