Re: CT BLE Jungle and random warm Nov South Jersey Pics
Message from George in Bandon Oregon
nice pics and plants (and homes). the unknown BLE is POSSIBLY a photinia (aka "redtip"). agree with Ken on the i.d. on the rhododendron (r. maximum)---a hardy native evergreen large shrub that (very) occasionally under the right conditions can become a small tree (to 40'!!!!) add the native mt. laurel (kalmia latifolia---state flower of New Jersey I think)which can (sometimes) grow to 30' and throw in a holly (ilex opauca) and you can have a beautiful and hardy native "jungle" up there.
