Really lovely - they're sort of cheerful looking aren't they?

Yes I know what you mean, its under a bark mulch and I feed it when I feed my summer baskets. I have some others the same age but only half the size.

This one is onbviously in the perfect spot. It has the lighter coloured leaves too doesn't it? I always think that the contrast with the berries is better with the limey coloured leaves. Is that a euonymus next to it?

Yes you can see that better in my pics page 2

Drc, this is lovely, but doesn't look like the plant I mean, perhaps I've got the name wrong, duh wouldn't be the first time:-) I didn't remember it's name so looked for pics that looked like it:-(

Bornagain look at Skimmia Japonica which sounds more like yours, also see Sk Rubella and Sk nymans produces lots of berries.
