It looks like a slightly frost-damaged Potato Vine (Solanum jasminoides).

Thats certainly a Solanum flower.

You may find it listed as Solanum laxum 'Album' doesn't like frost or cold winds, and needs a sheltered south or SW facing position.

Thank you all very much! I asked them what it was at the time but the gardener was on holiday. A visiting florist said it was a Hoya plant... The world order is now restored.

Mind boggling to think of a Hoya outdoors in the UK!

A florist???? Saying it was a Hoya??? Good gracious! :-/

I've found out the hard way that you don't have to know anything about plants to be a flower arranger!

What a shame, though, as she/he must have come across Hoyas before, I'd have thought, and they're sooooo distinctive, aren't they!

How do I say thanks?
