then Viburnum tinus
and maybe another escallonia
the first is a Mahonia, you can prune some of the older stems right to the ground if it gets a bit lanky
2nd an escallonia
Interesting, both those two plants stink. But not for long
Impatient drivers who think everyone else is in the wrong
it' hard to see the leaves on the OP but they don't look like the much divided leaves of Anthemis tinctoria to me. It's still Anthemis tinctoria, whatever cultivar name it's given
GD, I think you said it was in an open garden. Can you ask the garden's owner?
Have to admit not started my research programme yet
looks like Dracunculus vulgaris to me.
You mean Amorphophallus 'Konjak'? that's more upright, more substantial, different leaves and less reliably hardy in the UK
if you want figs yes but it may do OK as a foliage plant
i don't think it's suitable but I can't think of anything similar but more restrained.
