  • It might be a Spirea
    ask your neighbor what the flower looked like if and when it was flowering over the summer.

  • Not an azalea, maybe a sweetbush?

  • does it flower? the leaves are somewhat flexible/soft, and so are the branches/stems. its been trimmed (assumedly by the previous owners), and its about 2' tall.
    i KNOW i've seen it before, i'm just drawing a blank on its identity.

  • I can see the recent trimming. And that makes me wonder IF it will bloom this spring. They may have cut the new growth off too late in the season for curb appeal and you may not get flowers this spring. I'm thinking it is a Spirea with those soft pointed leaves, probably pink and white flowers.

  • Looks like it could be oleander. I'm going by the white line I'm seeing in the middle of the leaf.
