Thanks for the fast response, but after looking at the pics, I wonder if this is the same plant. Your photo looks like it spreads aka creeper – and is at foundation height instead of being a taller shrub. I have sent a new pic as it is in the yard now. Comes across like a shrub and is mixed in with other shrubs. On closer inspection the leaves look almost blistered/ bubbles where the green is and the whiter areas are imprinted like a crocs skin. Any further help?

    Maybe pittosporum. http://www.ces.ncsu.edu/depts/hort/consumer/factsheets/shrubs/pittosporum_tobira.html

    Thanks! I was at the Ace Hardware at Scott Blvd yesterday and saw a pittosporum that looked somewhat similar. I hope the cuttings make it and then I’ll pay close attention next spring on the established ones.
    Thanks for your help!

    I’d still lean toward the euonymous. The pittosporum I’m used to are smooth leaves and the leaves are more dense especially at the tips of the branches. On the size of the plant, euonymous will vary greatly especially given the growing conditions, light, how crowded it is.
