Lindera aggregata - click image to enlarge
Atlanta Botanical Garden. June 2003. A very compelling leaf shade with 3 prominant veins and an abruptly pointed apex. It reminds one something of
Viburnum davidii for gloss and symmetrical aspects. It is however an open plant of 8-12 feet and not dwarf the forementioned Viburnum.

These two pictures were shot at the Raulston Arboretum in early Novemerr 2003. This large shrub to small tree is remarkable for the orange fall color and the black fruit that contrasts so nicely with it. It is a very rare species in US collections at least - and we found not listing for it in the RHS PLANT FINDER 2003 either.

JC Raulston Arboretum. September and November 2003. This species has a longer, narrower-looking leaf than L. glauca above and colors nearly as well in fall. The dark fruit on it are also plentiful and interesting. The leaf quality in summer is below the glossy and texture of L. chienii.
