Does anyone know what this shrub is? I was given a cutting 2 years ago and now it is 5 feet tall. The lady who gave it to me said  she thought it was called a Hymalayan Fuschia? But I can't find any reference to that name,

Can anyone identify a tree from which I have the seed pod. I took it from a tree outside my apartment in; Gran Canaria many years ago. It is about 6 inches long and resembles a large pea pod. I still have it it sounds like a type of marracca? ( spelling)    musical instrument! I would send a picture but I have tried and tried all unsuccessfully.

Thank you all, it's certainly food for thought.Oh and pomegranates do grow here, I've picked them in another piece of land I was shown also oranges.

In all probability, this time next year I will be in my new house in Corfu! It is in almost an acre of what is at the moment an olive orchard. I have been on amazon and could not find anything relevant to a new garden. The soil is; red, but that means almost nothing. I am a gardener of average knowledge but these days unfortunately, of limited ability due to a "bad back" Any ideas?
