Could anyone please tell me my name. I do not have flowers but in the Spring I have lovely Pale green / Lime leaves and when the sun shines on me I am amazing. I grow to about 6 to 7ft tall. I may be part of the Acer family but I'm sure I have a proper name.

Not Acer - maybe a Sambucus variety? If the leaves were more yellow, I'd suggest Sambucus sutherland gold - might be easier to ID if you add a photo of the whole plant so we can see growth habit.

I have added a full photo...the colour is starting to fade now and I will be pruned hard in a couple of months...ready to shine again in the Spring.

I'm sticking with Sambucus, as already suggested... how long's it been planted?

This shrub must be 20 odd years old, its pruned hard and has never failed to deliver. Hope that's not tempting fate 🤞 When it is in full colour it looks stunning along side the Golden Oats also in that corner. I looked at Sutherland Gold and I would agree that is the name of this beauty. Thanks for the advice Best Regards C
