It doesn't look quite like Google pics, they seem to have a trumpet shaped flower.heres some close ups to compare yours, if yours is in flower now.

this one seem to flower for ages and the birds love it as it's very thick and protective in the winter.

 This is the buds.

 The flowers have stamens and other curly bits in the middle.

Solanum crispum 'Glasnevin'

 This one is about the same age, I don't think you could murder it, I am constantly chopping bits off. It was cut right back in the Spring, it's covering the shed again. If it grabs me I chop it.

Any ideas please........

That one I am trying to ID, very tough, evergreen dense, the birds love to hide in there in winter. Just don't know yet what it is for sure!

Yes, very waxy and twiggy, I will have a sniff tonight but can't say I have ever noticed much smell to it. Thank you.

Crocosmia, no flowers just lushus foliage.

If you feed them, you can get lots of lush foliage at the expense of the flowers, they survive on very little. You can split them in Autumn or Spring, but not too much feeding.

look wot she did to me........

One minute I'll go and have a sniff, 

No, maybe just a very faint smell like privet but nothing much, the bees don't go on it.

They keep a supply of dry mix in the cupboard, we used to sell them as home cooked, but the owner bought a catering sized packet of mix. Well, it was true, they were home cooked!

They can be cooked first then frozen, then revived in the oven but they do have to be cooked first.
