Can anyone tell me what this tree is. It still has almost all of its leaves. Last spring I pulled off all the previous years leaves so now wonder if it isn't decidu
ous as I had assumed
Is it some sort of Euonymus? Close-up view of a leaf and some bark might help. Is this a recent photo?
Here is the leaf and bark
That's very helpful, Bev; I'll have a think in a while and I'm sure others will, too.
Thank you Joe. My fingers got absolutely freezing going out to take the pics!
I suppose this has no flowers or fruit? I wondered, too, whether it was a shrub or actually a young tree that has seeded itself in your garden.
It doesn't have flowers or fruit. I got it from someone on freegle.
Why did you pull all its leaves off?
Still puzzling. If you have an i-phone, you can get plant ID apps such as Leafsnap.
Those leaves are rather beautiful. I had a good look for some information but couldn't find anything. I suppose it couldn't have catkins or berries or even flowers that appear in winter so that you're not noticing them?
