Might be Bay Laurel (Laurus nobilis).

Added pics: the red flower you see in the back is from an oleander bush and not part of this tree.

This one sure is interesting. It is most certainly not a beauty berry, much as that is a pretty bush and the berries are a similar color. The leaves look about the right shape and size for a rhododendron but the leaf placement is off and none in that family have berries anything like that. There are a handful of other shrubs and small trees with similar leaves but not those berries. A cool mystery and certainly not a tree I have around here!!

The last picture helped a bit and I am pretty sure you have an imported tree in the Syzgium family. It's probably the Australian Brush Cherry (Syzgium paniculatum) which looks like this:


Close up here:

It could also be one of the other members of the same family since they all have similar leaves and fruit color. Syzygium australe is another contender. The OP may want to compare the fruit up close to some of the following links to see which one since it is hard to see the details in either picture.


For S. australe: Syzygium australe or http://www.cropwildrelatives.org/fil...amilton%29.JPG

For S. paniculatum: Dr. Giuseppe MAZZA Journalist - Scientific photographer > PLANTS > Syzygium paniculatum or Syzygium paniculatum - Royal Botanic Gardens & Domain Trust - Sydney, Australia

Looks like it could be a Brazillian Pepper Tree, there are a lot of them in your area.

That is definitely not Brazilian Pepper. BP has compound leaves, true red berries that show up in the winter, and a sprawling habit.

Shelbygirl,
Well, I think Ifigured out what your tree is.
I hope I am right on this one.
It is a Joy Perfume Tree.
Michelia Champaca look up online.
The seeds gave it away to me.
i am going to grow 5 of these trees soon, but I will
have to bring them inside in winter, unlike you.
Check out the pics online especailly of the seeds that look
exactly like what your tree has.
I hope I'm right for your sake.

Looked it up and, no, I don't think so. The leaves are very different. But I sure thank you for trying! I do believe it is the Australian Brush Cherry.

DING,DING.DING.....I believe we have a winner! Thank you ever so much J&EM! After researching and going through google imaging...I believe this is what these trees are. I am going to take a cutting into one of the nurseries around here when I get the chance. Again, thanks so much for helping me out!
