Is this an Escallonia?

Could be Lizness. I'm pretty sure it's one of the small leave species fuchsias

One of the eupatoriums, possibly E. cannabinum

There are loads of species and cultivars of spirea and I think you're right.

Hi fidget, I just need to give it a squeeze then I'd know

Have you had a look at beginner 14's plant? It's too late, he's dug it up. But  I do like to know

I think it's a fuchsia, maybe thymifolia or another similar species 

If you enlarge and look top right you can see a seed pod. 

Hard to tell in a photo but in reality fuchsia has a much softer look and feel than escallonia

If you don't like it dump it cotty. I've nurtured things I don't really like for daft reasons; they're rare,  a friend donated them,  I grew it from seed and it took  ages

I'm more ruthless now

Identify my plant please

Anyone addicted?

Posted: 24/07/2014 at 12:02

I don't think I'm addicted. Most of the time I've no idea what's going on

I like to look at pictures of plants and gardens and hear how people grow things.

I like to meet the members on trips and I like the seed and plant swap.

The rest is lost on me,  I live in my own private world. Never watchTV, maybe an occasional iplayer GW, and the rest of the world goes by. That'll do me
