I think it is Rhoderdendron.
Any ideas out there?

Could be, but a close up of leaf would be beneficial.

Could it also be Rhaphiolepis umbellata?

These have ice on them. I hope you can determine the plant.

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.

Finally got time to reply here again.
Yes they are all pictures of the same plant.
Here's a couple more.
Thanks for helping me out.

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.

Your last guess was right. We are enjoying seeing it through the breakfast nook bay window.
