2 for 1 please. The first photo shows a stem from an evergreen that was brought to our gardening group for ID . I think it might be a bay laurel but not sure.
The second photo I have asked about before a couple of years ago without success- hopefully some new members may be able to help. It is evergreen , grown as a standard. The older leaves suffered damage last winter but there is new growth. The features are Crimson stems and each leaf is edged with Crimson. No flowers yet. It looks like a type of laurel leaf again. Thanks again.
PS have added a full picture of the standard. Trying to contact the owner of the first photo berried stem.

Could the top pic be escallonia?

Its definitely not Bay Laurel - unfortunately, ID is always easier if we can see the whole plant as well as a close up - growth habit, height, spread give important clues to ID. Same is true for the second one you've asked about....

Is the first pic one of the euonymus family that has reverted ?

Going by the serrated edge to the leaves, I'd say not, Julien

The first one looks like an Ilex, possibly J. C. Van Tol. The second one looks like Laurus nobilis to me.

Have you changed the top photo?

Adding a photo when updating the question has somehow removed the first photo. I'll try and put it back.

The first photo is Euonymus japonicus. The second and third are Prunus lusitanica.
