I would be good to be able to see the leaves in detail. This makes an identification easier. – Chris Jun 23 '14 at 7:07
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about plant identification. These questions are usually asked on Gardening and Landscaping Stack Exchange. This topic is not found in the following appropriate topics listing in the Help center: 1) General questions about biological concepts 2) Questions about the biological mechanisms behind medical conditions 3) Questions about techniques in a biological or biochemical laboratory – J.
