Plant. ID please!

Someone was throwing it out (my neighbour has the shrub now) and she gave me this cutting.

No idea what it is - possibly a free montedhendron? (Sorry about the spelling).

Some buds starting to form, but may be a while until we see any flowers.

thanks image

    ..I think you mean Fremontodendron... might be that...stems should be bristly which they appear to be...

    I thought maybe the shrub suggested was fremontodendron from the name.

    but 2 foot is a bit small

  • Thanks all.

    it is that name I was thinking of - but add autocorrect to my abysmal spelling and you get Free Montedhendron image


    Thanks again x

    Definitely not a fremontodendron. Looks more similar to a camellia leaf. A picture of the actual shrub would help a lot.

  • It looks a little like a holm oak, or garrya elliptical? Hard to tell!
