and cotoneasters just stick their elbows out so you bang your head weeding

Mr Blobby treatment. I like that, describes it exactly. I think some people that see no further than a bright coloured flower, completely oblivious to an ugly shaped shrub.

Cornubia is good and tree like

Hybridus pendulus as a tree is grafted and is a weeping tree, It's a ground cover one grated to the top of something else.

C.lacteus is definitely a bush, not so brightly berried.

Yes, I've looked at the Bristol onion and I think you're right Marion.

A. vineale looks like the one that was marketed as A. 'Hair' a few years ago. That has made a mass of leafy seedlings but I haven't seen a flower since the first season.
