Help naming a plant.
I bought this plant some time ago and have forgotten its name. I had no idea it would produce little white flowers, I've had it about three years, I think, and it has never flowered before now.




It's probably hebe ochracea 'James Stirling'

Definitely, and some of mine have flowered this year. It's often a bit shy to do so. Perhaps the late season has affected it for the best!

Thanks for the answer, as soon as I read it ,I remembered it. Oh dear my old brain has lost its marbles, sometimes I can't remember my own name ?.
Can you tell me if I can prune it, its getting a bit leggy.

Carefully, as it's a slow growing one, and doesn't regenerate freely from low down. Just a trim, or reduce the longer stems only

Thanks Worthy1. I will prune it after its finished flowering.
