Would like an ID on this please. Thanks.
From this distance, and if that pic's been taken recently, it looks remarkably like Nandina domestica, probably Firepower.

Or could be Leucotheum? (not v good spelling, sorry) which likes acid soil.
Could be, Sheila, pic's taken from too far away to be sure.
The picture was taken New Years Eve in a friends garden, the top picture was taken from about 2-3 ft away. The plant is approx 18ins high I would guess.
Well its either the one I mentioned, or Leucothoe - I note the leaves look shiny, and am not sure whether that's because the area was wet (ground looks wettish) - if the area was dry, the shiny leaves would indicate Leucothoe rather than Nandina.
I like this Littlelegs,its a lovely colour.I wouldn't mind one of these myself,and this would do nicely...
Leucothoe 'Zeblid', I think. Worthy
is it one of those rainbow leucothoe plants?
its very nice whatever its called ~ all that colour on new years eve and not a drink in sight!!?
This is not the rainbow one, Stickitoffee, though there is a variety called that - could be L. zeblid, as Worthy says, or L. scarletta.

its much brighter than my rainbow one i really like it.
Bamboo, Sheila, Worthy ......... Thank you for your imput , Ive had a look on several sites using your info and I think its Leucothoe Scarletta Zeblid.
Sticki, Bloomer, ...... have a look on google, there several sellers.
thank you ~ is it one i could plant now?
Only trouble is, I think it prefers acid soil. Is that what you have, Sticki?
Thanks Worthy - is it hardy?
yes sheila ~ camellias quite happy so i think it is at least a bit acidic
This one is in a pot, can't you make that any type of soil you can ? Honest I don't know.
Yes, you can Littlelegs, by using ericaceous compost. These plants also hate drought, I've noticed, and given that one's in a pot and outside on New Year's Eve, unless it was put under shelter during the bad weather, I think we can assume its hardy, Sheila.

It does say its hardy on the website Bamboo, its been out through all the freezing,snowy weather according to my friend.
