Can someone identify this shrub please?

Cornwall, United Kingdom Gb

Growing in my neighbour's garden, neither of us know what it is. It stands about four feet tall with a similar spread. The leaves are very slender and a dark glossy green. It's growing against a west facing wall.




I think it maybe Leptospermum, pls check my spelling

Thanks Bren. Yes, it is Leptospermum. I checked in Botanica once I had a name. Before then, I didn't know where to start looking,

And they are only hardy in the UK in very sheltered locations. Managed to lose two last winter :-(
