    Can anyone identify this plant for me? My aunt found it growing in the fringes of the forest on the Sunshine Coast of B.C. and she thinks it is very rare -- she is 85 years old and has never seen one before...

    Looks a bit like Cestrum parqui which is known to escape cultivation.

    Daphne laureola, rapidly becoming a pest species in this region.

    Thank you very much. I'll tell my aunt the name but won't spoil her pleasure in thinking she discovered something special!
