I have a plant growing in my dahlia container - it has leaves but no flowers at the moment.
Can anyone help me identify it please

It is a Cotoneaster, maybe C. simonsii or similar. Have a look around and you will probably see the errant parent.

Thanks vincent, I will see if it develops as expected (I have checked pictures etc on Internet).

Cotoneasters do self seed in unexpected places - birds eat the berries and the grand master plan for cotoneaster to spread takes off :-)
