    My wife planted this little bush way to close to the house nearly 15 years ago while I was overseas.

    Today it is nearly 20' tall and I have to keep it cut back to prevent it from taking over the side porch (heavy shade, north end of the house)

    Loamy soil, it gets a lot of rain directly from runoff off the roof of the house.

    It's turned into one of my favorite plants because my bees love this thing this time of the year.

    I want to plant more, further away from the house, but I'm having trouble IDing this thing and once it went into the ground my wife went brain dead on what it is.

    Thanks for any help in advance.

    Thus is it in the foreground left ...

    Here is a bigger view. Standing this close is like standing next to a hive, thousands of bees milking this plant ...

    Google loquat and see if that works

    Jason ... leaves are sure similar but I've never seen any fruit on this tree to speak of really, just the small white bundles of flowing buds. The bees love them.

    The leaves do look a lot like those loquat leaves though - might be in the same family maybe. Thank you - that gives me a general direction to look ... your response is much appreciated.

    It looks like loquat to me too. We have several in the yard. Fruit doesn't happen every year/ we don't always catch when there is fruit, but they are tasty. My wife is not from around here; we know it by another name: nìspero.
