  • What is this Plant??

    This plant was abandoned by a neighbor in North Mississippi. It onlly had the stem and one small leaf right in the top. I brought it home, repotted it and it has grown this much since mid June. However I have no idea what this is. I don't recall ever seeing one. Can anyone help me identify this unknown???


    located in North Mississippi

    Hi Sandraj,

    I'm wondering if this was a shrub and did it grow outdoors?* Have you ever seen them growing in the ground?* Do you know if it gets flowers?

    I can't quite tell from the picture, but is the stalk a cane like you would see on a Dracaena?

    It reminds me of Prunus laurocerasus, possibly the dwarf Prunus laurocerasus 'Otto Lyuken' aka Otto Lyuken laurel. s%5CLaurel%20'Otto%20Luyken'%20(close%20up).jpg

      Off the top of my head, it looks like what we call a Japanese Plum here in New Orleans.

      In my opinion it is a Loquat Tree. Also called a Nispero tree. (Eriobotrya japonica)

      Take a look on google images and see if the pics match your plant.

      edit: Seeing now that youre in nothern MS, Im even more convinced that its a loquat.
