Shrub ID please

this plant has little 5 point star flowers. Google any teucrium and look at the shape of the flowers, very distinctive and nothing like the shrub shown.

As Teucrium fruticans, which this plant resembles superficially, is evergreen and thornless I think we have to discard that as an ID.

leaves are as important as flowers in ID Jane. Neither of the photos have enough of them

it looks a lot better when you thin it out doesn't it. There was a lot of dead stuff in the middle if ours which was spoiling the look.

I've just removed everything except the newest cans from a large patch. The leaves are just opening now. I like it. It had become very thick and now is see through.

i think that's a Limonium, probably Limonium latifolium.

new pond

a small pond warms up quickly and that's when the algae grows. It's not harmful, the wildlife don't mind. Some people swear by barley straw, someone might explain how that works. I don't know. I have a large pond and still get algae.

Chemicals and filters aren't really part of a wildlife pond but it's your pond to treat as you like.

Is the tree alive and green GD? it looks leafless which should be a clue. I wonder about Genista aetnensis.
