    It's Leucothoe davisiae. It was deaccessioned a few years back. Brent has been trying to remove it, but it grew back from under the rock. We are going to revive the accession, so it will have a label soon.

    A good decision! If this plant grew back from under the rock, it deserves to be alive!
