I have a large shrub in my back garden against an east facing fence. I would like to know if anyone can identify this? It has pinkish creamy florets in early spring, followed by small hip shaped berries in a metalic mauve colour. the shrub is a fast grower.
I also have an infestation of bugs on this shrub which i cannot identify any help with either would be appreciated. I have hosed them down and I have used bug killer on them, nothing even moves them. I have never seen them move, and have never seen anything like them before. They appear to congregate mostly on the more mature wood and are thickest at the top ot the shrub. They are about the size of a small ladybird.
