Can any of you knowledgeable gardeners got any idea what this is & also is it ok in a pot or would it be better in the garden. I thought it had died but thankfully it hasn’t! Thank you

reminds me of an Hibiscus. It would be better in the ground.

Seaburngirl thank you very much for your reply. I’ll try to find a spot in the garden for it. Do you know how big it could grow?

they are quite slow growing and I have seen them over 6ft tall. though they respond to pruning to keep them is shape/size.

As above, hibiscus, they are slow growing but can be over six feet, however they can also be kept in bounds with pruning

Prefer a very sunny spot for maximum flowers, they come into leaf late so come spring don't think it's dead just because nothing is showing when everything else is in leaf

A lovely plant and worth the space
