Looks kind of like mountain laurel to me but I'm no expert.


In the end, it's not the years in your life that count, it's the life in your years.

Hard to tell from that picture, could be a native wax myrtle.

If the small black fruits are part of the bush, then it is persimmon

The black things are “fruit” and have dried I guess from lack of water. I know it isn’t mountain laurel and was thinking persimmons. I will try to zoom in on another picture and post shortly. Thanks for your help.

Not a mountain laurel. Looks like persimmon.

Lots of it in the Edward's plateau. Deer love the fruits. I think they nibble the leaves too.

Persimmon fruits have a leafy looking cap on them, like a strawberry. A closer picture of the fruit would help.
I posted a picture of a bush almost identical to that, it was a lotebush.

It could be lotebush but by description the fruit is small where this is grape size.

Here is an enlarged picture. [Linked Image]

I also didn’t notice any spikes or thorns on it.
