This little tree resembles a crape myrtle. It hasn’t ever bloomed, but that may be because it’s been in a very shady location. It doesn’t seem to be bothered by any insects. The bark peels some as seen in the photo. It’s a great small tree and was given as a small rooted cutting to my late mother by a friend. We’ve never known what it is and would love to know. It was more of a shrub until my sister limbed it up a few years ago.

    Chionanthus retusus, Chinese Fringe Tree. Move it to a sunny spot this winter and you will be rewarded with a show of white flowers in spring before the leaves emerge. Wonderful ornamental tree.

    Is it evergreen. It looks a bit like Coprosma repens ( )but the foliage isn’t really glossy enough. Might be due to the shade.
