Recognise this?

This 'tree' was given to me as a sapling about 6 years ago. I am told it came from Greece. It lived in my lean-to in a pot for 5 of those years and last summer I put it out into the garden. It seemed to do quite well until the spring and then started to look tired and shabby (I know the feeling). I have no idea what it is and would really appreciate any help in identifying it. It stands about 4 ft tall.

Thanks -

Looks similar to a immature Grevillea banksii, tender and prefers acidic soil. But I could be very wrong.
