I have a lovely plant in my garden that we picked up a few years ago. We promptly lost the tag for it as soon as we brought it home and now no one can remember what it is . But I’d love to know what it is!
(NB: All photos enlarge if you click on them.)
It is a fairly slow growing woody shrub, with pointed and grooved leaves that are mid green and manage to be both glossy and hairy at the same time. It flowers in clusters, starting as small pink and slightly waxy buds opening into sweetly scented white flowers. It is a deciduous plant and the leaves change colour to a beautiful orangey red for the autumn.
Unfortunately I butchered it a bit as I pruned it back in a hurry to move it a few months ago. It is recovering well, but not much by way of flowers this year.
I’m sure someone out there will instantly recognise it! Please let ne know if you do!
