Do you know what these are?

Post  Leone on 2/5/2018, 6:10 pm


I saw these trees a few days ago, but I have no idea what they are. They are in Alabama. I thought it was interesting to see blossoms on a tree at this time of year. They kind of look like roses, but there are no thorns.

And then, there are these berries.


Does anyone know?

I think the top picture is a camellia (or maybe a rhododendron).  Maybe Capecoddess will come along as she seems familiar with camellia's or maybe it is rhododendron's).  My camellia's are budding right now but I don't think the buds are opening yet.

Here is a picture of my camellia that I took last year when it was in full bloom.  Last year I mistakenly called it a rhododendron but my daughter set me straight and told me it was a camellia.  Capecoddess also said she thought it was a camellia.  I think it looks like your shrub.

Looks like azalea to me in the first one but we don't have camellias here so nothing to compare it to.  It's really pretty what ever it is.  Is that 2nd photo berries or buds?

My camellia's have not had berries either, but is the tree/bush in the top picture the same tree/bush that is in the second picture or are they different trees/bushes.  The top picture did not look like it had any "berries" so I thought they were not the same tree. ???????????

Hi,

The two bushes are separate. I am sorry I did not make that clear.

Yolos, your camellia is beautiful! Such beautiful blossoms! I've never seen one in full bloom!

In the second picture, they look like berries to me.

These trees/bushes were behind an abandon house and have not been taken care of for many years. So they are big like trees, but maybe they are bushes that need some pruning.

The top photo is a camellia, they get really large like a tree here.

The 2nd photo appears to be a lowquat tree. (Might not be tho) They have fruit if we get very little winter, for it blooms in winter, and has fruit where the berries are.

Yes, camellia.  I wish they could be grown here in Central Oregon!

Thank you everyone for your replies. It looks like we may be buying this house, so we will be able to enjoy all of the beautiful blooms as well as the other hidden treasures that will come up in the spring.

After we get settled I will be happy to start a new square foot garden!
