The first 3 pics are diff. angles of the same bushes. A neighbor has them & they provide excellent screening of his house from the street, which is what I want for my house. The one with the little white-ish leaves sort of grows like forsythia.

The 4th pic is of a small tree--or overgrown bush?--on my property. It has multiple "trunks" about 2-3 in. in diameter. The orange flowers--no clue.

TIA for any info.!

The first is a Dappled willow, with a Sand Cherry in front of it.
The second looks to be a Snowflake viburnum, which looks like someone trimed the bottom branches off.
The third, I have no clue.

Agree with your IDs. The photos are a bit blurry, but I think the orange-flowered shrub is an azalea.

The fourth one, with the blossoms in a row, appears to be a Double-file Viburnum.

Good call. Gibraltar Orange, or possibly Mandarin Lights Orange.

Very similar bushes, and you could very well be correct after putting them both side by side.

Or rhododendron? I'm thinking rhododendron.

Maybe. But to me, the leaves, as nearly as I can see, don't look leathery, and that orange color is more common in azaleas than rhodies.

Technically, azaleas are rhododendrons. Most gardeners find the distinction useful, even if taxonomists don't. https://azaleachapter.com/plant-info...t-is-an-azalea

Definitely an azalea.

I didn't know that. Here's mine:



It was marketed to me here in South Central MN as Japanese Lights rhododendron. Truly a gorgeous bush when the sun was shining.

There were two. Despite tender loving care they struggled along for five or six years and then gave up.

My neighbor could grow them but once she moved they are looking kind of tough.
