Subject: RE: BS: What tree is this, please?
I do have an unknown bush I have mentioned before.

Our biggest bush is unknown to me. It surrounds half of the pool and its leaves remain green all year long. ITs berries are a pretty orange...but its pale green flowers SMELL LIKE CARRION. It actually attracts flies to ferilize its flowers. The bush is over 20 feet tall and its numerous trunks never exceed a 7 inch diameter.
It is a perfect plant to block all visibility from the ground up and is wonderfull all year long - except for the rotting flesh scented flowers.

PS thanks again for the succesful identification of a ornamental hops vine last year. Also our jewel berry bushes continue to look daed until June when they come alive and make lavender sapphire berries that last until January.
