Recently bought house, and am trying to identify this shrub, at least I think it is a shrub.

    Could you make new post with closeup of leaves & branches? For now a wild guess in the two genera to check out: species in the madrone (Arbutus) & manzanita (Arctostaphylos) genus. Although I can’t tell for certain, I’m leaning toward the manzanita group? This is a large genus with numerous hybrids. Again I’m only purely speculating. Click on images to enlarge from the included Acrtostaphylos link below. Best wishes!
