Vic, yes, cuttings would be possible from the plant.
Thanks for the idea, I looked up Loropetalum (not far off L!) but the leaves aren't as rounded on the pictured shrub and don't have such obvious veining. Maybe I haven't seen the right picture yet but I'm not convinced so far :)
I don't think this plant is your plant: http://davesgarden.com/journal/si/2591.html but I thought it might resemble it enough to give you another crumb trail to follow. Found it in Go_Vols journal while looking up Bergamot.
Sure! I'm not much on IDing, but I am good at shots in the dark. ;-) If I see anything else resembling it, I'll let you know. Just a thought ~ have you ever heard of Weird Dude's Plant Zoo? If we're all still stumped, I wonder if he'd know if he was sent an e-mail with pic? http://www.weirddudesplantzoo.com/
