What is this plant please?




Is it a shrub or plant? if it is a shrub look up Daphne as there are a few types some winter flowering and some later with glossy leaves google may help

Certainly not a Daphne, the flowers are the wrong shape for that. Otherwise not able to help, sorry.

I don't recognise it, but assume that it is not hardy in UK. So bring it indoors and treat as a greenhouse/conservatory plant over winter.It is lovely so would be worth the effort to look after it nicely.

How about an escallonia? These shrubs should survive the winter in a sunny, sheltered spot

Thanx guys - I shall build on this info. Cheers ;>)

Escallonia looks just right. TYVM

Escallonia would be hardy though - got some in my garden. Is it a shrub?

Could we have a size reference in pic please?

It is a close up - the flower cluster is about 1 1/2 inches tall.

The photo was taken in Ireland last week - milder than England.

It didn't have a woody stem - plant was about 15" tall.
