I was told that this shrub (about 4 ft tall) is Drimys but looking for your take on it. It’s in a dry semi-shady spot and obviously not thriving (it never flowers) and I’ve never been successful at propagating it. Is it Drimys and is it too big to be moved?

This is Drimys lanceolata. It can be moved as it will do nothing where it is.

They are difficult to propagate. Try September and some bottom heat.
