I have an unidentified shrub/tree - can anyone help? It has brilliant yellow autumn colour, and at this time of year inconsequential tiny white flowers that the bees love. Probably more a small tree than a shrub
Is it a Wayfaring Tree - Viburnum lantana?
Are the leaves downy underneath?
Will go check - once the heavens have finished opening
No, not wayfaring tree, I know those well.
and this one is very familiar and I'm sure it will come to me
total guess. Styrax japonica?
could it be Cotoneaster Frigidus ?
sorry not sure of spelling.
no, it's not any of the cotoneasters
It it's decidous might it be a sophora? Bet it isn't
Its definitely deciduous - will google sophora
What sort of berries does it produce?
No - the first picture i posted shows the flowers in their full glory ( i said they were inconspicuous!!).
it could well be something that has seeded there rather than been planted.
Tiny green berries that don't come to much. Not selling it well am I. However, it is worth keeping for its autumn colour and the fact it is a bee magnet
I wonder if it is one of the Sorbus family...looks like my whitebeam but I think the leaves are not quite the same...
