Hi guys,

Can anybody identify this rather unhealthy specimen?

Thanks,

Bill

It looks like Rhododendron macabeanum but we will wait to see what Silversurfer says.

Agee with Greengage...Rhododendron sp...but would not like to say which one...there are several large leaves sp.

The R. Macabeanum I have seen and photographed have more veins per leaf.

Looks like Loquat to me. (without googling or DuckDuckgoing.)

Eriobutrya Japonica.

It does look a bit likea loquat. But, as Silver surfer says about the Rhodo, I thought the loquat had more 'veiny' leaves?

Perhaps the stem can tell us more? Does that look like the Rhodo in question? I don't know what that is like.

Where was the photo taken?

I'd say it was taken alongside a Loquat Tree. Smile Smile (Sorry, Sue! I couldn't help myself) Smile Smile

Loquat.


Rhodo.

I'll forgive you. Very Happy

It reminds me of a plant I tried to grow from seeds my friends in Spain gave me. They call it a Nespero. I think they are related? Gorgeous fruit, similar to a persimmon.

I stand corrected.

In pic 3 I can now see the serrated edges of Eriobotrya japonica..Loquat.
Rhodos would never have this.
Sorry folks...must look harder next time!

Sue....Nispero is another name for Loquat and other trees.

They called it Nespero, that's why I have never been able to find it online! Shame we can't grow it here - well I can't, it is a lovely fruit and fresh off the tree beats supermarket every time.
