It is  purple leaved Cotinus [ there is also a lime green one ]

It will have a haze of fawn flowers which ii why it is sometimes called the smoke bush.

They can grow large 2-3 metre by 2-3 metre.

Can prune hard in winter, but then will not get the flowers, but bigger leaves. I like the big leaves so prune mine very hard.

Help with ID please

I have had some success using Nuts method. The slight problem is that many of the seeds fall off before they are ripe, you need them to be brown rather than red. I have also found a fairly low germination rate, so sow plenty.

I agree with Verbascum. It also looks like one of the big yellow ones, which means it is probably biennial, and so it will die following flowering

Hi Rosemummy. Yes that first picture is a Cistus.

Fg. I went out to have another look at my I. crysographes, and it looks different to yours, so I am not sure what yours is.
