I planted it, thinking it was a crepe myrtle. Now, I don’t think so. So the question: Is this a crepe myrtle?


  • laura735 Master Identifier says:

    To my eyes these leaves & twigs are crape myrtle (Lagerstroemia ), some varieties of this species have “sub-opposite, thick and leathery, privet-like”. Perhaps your specimen might be a type of privet, possible glossy privet (Ligustrum lucidum)? But without its flowers, I could only speculating. Check out the included link below for more information on glossy privet, click on “view images” for more pictures, click on images to enlarge. When this blooms and you still don’t know, please resubmit with photos of flowers. Thank you and best wishes!
