I think it is Rhoderdendron.
Any ideas out there?
SOLVED: Another one to ID
The buds make it look like a Rhododendron. One with rather veiny leaves.
ok, now I'm with AmanitaM. The buds do look like a Rhodo. One that's not so happy.
Are the plants shown in the first and second picture (from the first post) the same exact plant? The second picture does look like Rhaphiolepis and the close-ups kinda do, too.
The photo of the whole plant has pale bark like a Raphiolepis, and the first closeup has serrate leaf margins, which I guess some Raphs have. Definitely not a Rhodie.
Yep, a Rhaphiolepis of some sort, though obviously one of the larger leaf types.
