It looks like Beech to me too. You can either trim it to keep it small or hedge like, or let it grow into a huge tree. If you trim in late July or August, it keeps its leaves over winter, and drops them in Spring rather than Autumn.

What plant is this

I think it is a Dactylorhiza fuchsii but it could be a hybrid.

Generally, they trail along the floor, a couple of metres or so.

They have tendrils ,so will cling to a support, but may also need tying on with some soft string.

Plant ID please!

You have Norah Barlow too. Do you find it mixes with the others to get hybrids, or have you not had it long.?  It's what I started with, then the bees were visiting neighbours as well, and I get all sorts.
