Identification of a shrub please.
Ashamed to say I can't remember if this flowers or not! If it does it can't be anything too pretty or I'm sure I would have noticed. I'm needing to move things around a bit and this space would be useful. Thanks a lot.




its not one I recognise sorry.

does it have a good leaf colour? just wondered why you planted it, what was it about it that you thought yes I'll have you. this isn't meant to be cheeky by the way. :o)

Perhaps a Leucothoe?

I note that the leaves are opposite, which should help narrow it down. A close up of where the leaves join the stem, especially near a growing tip, may help narrow down the possibilities of family affiliation.

I don't think I planted it - it's been there as long as I can remember. We've got a very large garden and I honestly can't remember if it flowers. Not sure how to add a photo to an existing question so will have to post it as a new question. Thanks
