Hi kasee

I think it may be a hardy fushcia - cant remember the name sorry! - I imagine that you could easily take some soft wood cuttings - take plenty then maybe one will survive!

good luck xx

its not a fushia, looks more like escallonia

I thought it might have been, however the flowers are really different to that of a fushcia - please see image just added -

Could it be a phygelius? Mins is similar but different colours.

I think its a Escallonia rubra macrantha after some research into them. I have taken some cuttings i will see if they grow/root

Definitely Escallonia sp.

I would agree on escallonia. An additional suggestion would be to try layering a branch,anchor it down with a stone, hopefully by next season it will have rooted
