tree details

Can you post pictures of the bark and close-ups of leaves/flowers and any other features?

Azara tree

I've added some additional pictures of the leaves and bark. Do these help narrow the identification down?

Azara serrata

I'm a former horticulturalist of 18 years and recognise this cultivated plant.

Azara

Hmm, it does look like an Azara, but doesn't A. serrata have rounder, more toothed leaves? Could it be a different Azara e.g. A. microphylla?
