This plant was small in March 2012 when it went in and last year grew slowly this year however it has doubled in size and now I know a lot more about it thanks to everyones input I can do some selective pruning.

I think it is almost impossible as they are so similar and the only problem with Larch Cottage is they do not have your past orders for you to see.I have been lopping bits of the shrub all year as it was getting a bit big and not knowing what it was I thought to keep it under control and I am now guessing I have taken the flowering stems of,so will be much more prudent in future.

I am pretty sure I bought it from Larch Cottage and they have Calicanthus floridus and Calicanthus floridus 'Michael Lindsay' so I will endeavour to decide which one thanks for the help.
