Mystery tree in Melbourne

richvinciJune 19, 2014

Hi folks,

I've moved into a new house, this small mystery tree is in the back yard. Approx 3-4 feet tall. There's a second tree which appears to be the same. Any ideas?

Looks like the leaf of a camellia. Not entirely sure, though.

One of the thousands of hybrids of Camellia japonica, I'd say.

A very sad Camellia. there are a couple of flower buds in the top picture so you should know what colour it is soonish. (Flowers early/mid spring here)
