Hi - thanks to you all, i think Weigela is the plant, maybe there are different coloured ones. Will try to take pics.

Hi pansyface, thanks for responding. No i dont think its lantana, the flowers seem to be more tubular (trumpet like) a bit like some salvias.

Hi - has anyone heard of a smallish shrub in flower now with lime green leaves & yellow & cerise pink flowers on the  same shrub? I keep driving past one but not suitable to stop & ask!

Thanks Villaverde 123, that's given me something to look out for.

Thanks Busy-Lizzie. I already have the yellow Choiysa but it is worth considering the green one. I'll see if anyone can come up with a few ideas. I'm trying to stop the easterly winds from affecting parts of my garden.

Hi - can anyone recommend a small shrub (to 1.5m h & w) which is densely packed & evergreen with some colour during the year?

I was considering Berberis Darwinii compact but have just read that it is susceptible to rust/mildew & a virus. As I live in a valley which can be quite damp I don't think this now would be a good idea.

I already have Pyracantha but it grows too large for this area.

Any ideas would be great thanks.

Ground elder

Hi - if you ever get ground elder in your garden you'll never get rid of it. As you pull the roots out they break up & each tiny piece will re grow. It's a thug!

However, they are right about it being ground cover.....

Hi - can anyone please advise if the lichen on my Azalea is going to eventually kill it? It's crept along the branches leaving only the tips to produce leaf & flower or is there anything I can do to halt/kill it?
