Can anyone guess this mystery shrub? It is in the front our our new home (first time gardeners). It is pretty overgrown - about 7 feet tall with leaves only at the ends of the branches. I would love to prune it back. We are located in Massachusetts.
Ok gals...I finally got this young lady, MissMoo, to post this pic here. Now ya'al have got to help her out.
I have no idea what it is....so someone, HELP!!!

Maybe a Bayberry?
My 1900s farmhouse:
Perhaps Pieris Japonica...Andromeda?
The easiest way would be if there are any old dead flowers (it blooms early in the season) since the shape of the blossom stems is distinctive...kind of lily of the valley ish
It can grow really big and the deer often leave it alone. Good for bees and insects in spring. Smells fairly nice too.
I have no idea what it is unless I could see it personally.

I would suggest that you take a branch - not just a leaf or two - to your local nursery and sky them. It looks nice & healthy.
I agree with jvelo-looks like my pieris .
I think it's some varitey of Japonica...not too good with the different names.
Looks like it might be a type of laurel. Does it bloom? Maybe a Schip Laurel.
It could also be a Mountain Laurel....another biggie in the New England area. And native too. I guess we'll know for sure when it blooms NEXT spring!!!!
