You might want to move it later, once its established as its a medium/large shrub. I have one, I love it.




Lots of alternative common names

Thank you all, you have confirmed my suspicions. I have looked in several books and on websites, coming up with the same answer and many common names.

What a fantastic forum and a wealth of knowledge.

Many thanks again.
