Another one your taking to the home show?
HEH...nope...found this one tucked away at a tree farm while waiting for my mud stuck truck to be pulled out with a tractor. It is a little too large to take to the show !
It looks like a cotoneaster but hard to confirm with the photo?
A variety of poison sumac???
There used to be a large hedge of this in front of a building at Brenau University in Gainesville, don't know if it is still there or not..Erica I think you are right, I am pretty sure it is Cotoneaster lacteus parneyi
cranberry bush? (is there such a thing) lol
Yes there is a Cranberry Viburnum and it does have red berries :), but it is not the plant in the picture.
Does it have long thorns-?------looks like my pyracantha whose leaves have turned a purplish
No thorns, and the leaves are longer and softer than a Pyracanthus.
Here is a photo of Cotoneaster lacteus that I took and it looks very similar.
Thanks Erica. I hate it when the ID of a plant is right on the tip of my tongue...lol....unfortunately happening with more and more frequency...
I know what you mean. Sometimes I remember the latin name but not the common or vice versa.
For the life of me, I cannot remember these names of the plants you folks always comment on. Heck I cannot even pronounce them. What ever happened to bush with berries on it? Or plant with those sticky leaves? You make it all so confusing.
Erica--is there a book that tells us how to pronounce Latin names--like Fine Gardening magazine does each month?
It's beautiful but looks like it would be messy in my yard:(
@ Dick C, not sure but I will check. Walter may know of one.
Cannot remember the name but I have one in my yard just like this...birds have eaten all berries from it, which is why I planted it. Would love to have tips on how to prune and reshape.
Hey Dick C, this is a pretty good link for the Latin plant names
It also links you to some other stuff that might be helpful
Pat, Cotoneasters are pretty forgiving on pruning. How much do you think needs to go?
@4Seasons --- It is about 8 x8 feet.. pretty scraggly. I like that natural look, but realize that the wind whips them to pieces, so need to shape. Have a class and I'll come, even though I hate driving...
Looks like a Possum Haw.
Looks like a Japanese Holly; although the tips of the leaves are usually pointed. :)
Is it an evergreen? How long are the mature leaves?
Is it a Pyracantha? Please excuse the spelling if it's wrong.
ID as a Parney Cotoneaster @Marcia Reichert , yes the leaves are evergreen, can't remember how long they are. The leaves are larger than what you would find on the Pyracanthus and no thorns
I think it is autumn olive. Van be invasive , does it have silvery colored leaves? It is hard to tell form picture. That is my guess
Looks like "Fire Throne" berries to me. Very poisonous , my little girl (who is 36 yr old now) ate some of these "pretty red berry's" and almost died
See above Martha Reichert. Same thing.
Coffee berry bush.
I d say you have some pretty good snacking for our feather friends and other wildlife in your area. 😁
