re the middle pic, I've been and looked. The blossom is all Pryus, It's cut back on the sides so we can get by but branches are overhead
They're carting nesting materials to somewhere and showing off a lot
It would have been more worth it if I'd labelled them up in the first place Jerry
There are lots of gaps, things long gone, I was even less organised when I started.
Don't panic. Not Teucrium germander, T.fruticans, a very different plant
Take no notice of the RHS calling it tree germander, they should know better. The plants is called Teucrium fruticans.
Sorry yours are a bit depressed. Mine are sad at times. they're not out as far as that this year yet. I'm on a mission to label up all the thousands of pics in the files and got stuck at this one
There's nothing I can think of apart from teucrium that has flowers that shape and T fruticans is the only shrubby one I know.
No, not caryopteris, very different flowers and stems
They looks like a teucrium flowers, probably T. fruticans. Are you sure they're not 2 cultivars of the same species
I expect it will shoot, though, as with the cherry, a cluster of shoots rather than a tree. You could let a single shoot grow to produce a tree
