    Nivusebay, I believe you mentioned in a separate post for same plant that you bought it at a nursery. You had asked for a blueberry specifically. Is this correct? I would hate to think a nursery wouldn’t give at least some type of berry. Even if they didnt have blueberry specifically. It definitely has charestics of a Banana Bush.

    It’s certainly not a blueberry. Possibly a banana bush (Magnolia figo) Likely wax leaf privet, (Ligustrum japonicum)

    It is hard to tell from just the leaves. Many berries have smooth leaves but those in the blueberry family have smaller, dark, textured leaves. It is growing tall, so I am thinking it wants to bush. With those leaves it may be in the Lonicera family. Like Lonicera Maackii (honeysuckle) Those do have berries, but they are not generally sold as an edible berry for people. Bees love the flowers and birds love the berries. We man need to wait for flowers. That will greatly help narrow it down.

    Have you had the plant long? All blueberry plants leaves turn orange/red in the fall. These leaves are very pale, blueberry varieties I am familiar with all have very dark leaves. Leaves should be tough, almost leathery. Shape and pointed end are correct though. Once it flowers you should be able to narrow it down. My best guess at this point is that it is a berry. No idea what kind.
