    I can't see the picture very clearly, but it looks like one of the escallonias to me - there are different varieties/colours and they can make very good hedges. image

    Could you get a better photo of the leaves and the flowers? Also some idea of whether it has thorns or smooth bark, if it is evergreen and which country it is in?

  • Is it a camellia?

     hopefully this gives a better view



  • there are no thorns

    flowers are pink

    assume its an evergreen as it has not dropped its leaves by now

    Here is a googled picture of an escallonia - the slight jagginess of the leaf edges looks familiar - so I think Dove could well be right

    ..looks as though someone has been pruning a Camellia at the wrong time of year...and pruned off all the flower or two are in flower...but not much more...   it appears to have been sheared off fairly recently...

    ..people put these plants in strange places...

    Looks more Camellia-like to me too. If you look at the size of the bricks - the foliage looks too big to be Escallonia. image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I don't know acid soil plants but I don't think it's an escallonia. Are the bright pink bits flowers? A close up of one of those might help, at least to get the family likenesses establishedimage
