Agree with Dononaea viscosum..probably purpurea.

We had a very large old twisted hazel that  didn't bear nuts.

I blame it being planted in deep shade.

They get far better catkins in full sun....better fertilisation and nuts will follow.

Not What I Thought!

There are 2 different Davidia.

Davidia involucrata and Davidia involucrata var vilmoriniana.

One has completely smooth leaves the other has hairy leaves.

Forget which way round it is.


We had a 15 year old specimen that flowered in the last 2 years.

I knew I recognised the leaf earlier just couldn't think why!

Flowerchild is right!

Davidia involucrata it is.

Definitely not Hazel or  Hornbeam.

All Viburnum have opposite leaves... so that rules that out.

I believe it is a Corylopsis. Possibly one such as Corylopsis spicata.

Wait a bit longer .. it should develop pale yellow flowers in the spring.

Evergreen Shrubs?

How about an evergreen Honeysuckle.....Lonicera Henryi?

Yes, the flower buds will start developing from now on...but will sit for the cold of winter, ready to open in the spring.

Have a look at Hazels... the male catkins are there already, waiting for spring.

Looks like Euphorbia peplus... common name Petty spurge.

Good id tips on link...

Should my honeysuckle look like this

I go with nutcutlet... Salix sp.

Notice the big  buds already .. waiting to burst open next spring.
