Can someone please help me identify this evergreen plant - Y3Rl6KQ.jpg?1

I thought i might be Tasmannia lanceolata/Mountain Pepper but I've never seen it flower.

    I'm with you on that, also known as a drimys. Looks slightly pale. Are you on acid Soil?

    Not acid soil but I take your point about being a bit pale. My main concern is that a number of the leaves are browning as well as few yellowing altogether. I'm not sure if it's down to overwatering or possibly a root fungus. I'll have to keep an eye on it but I'll put down some iron supplement and feed to see if I can increase the acidity a bit - actually what I probably should do is get a soil testing kit and confirm what the actual PH is ;)
