Not very big.

They are slow to start with.

We had a big one but lost it.

The new one has only been in 4-5 years so is still quite small.

I believe it is Trochodendron  aralioides.

A beautiful   interesting glossy leaved  evergreen shrub.

It can be on the tender side.

In South Wales our one is planted in the ground , in a sheltered spot.

Do you think...

At very worst they can only say no.

You have nothing to lose.

Keep us posted.

The company will probably not ask for them to be sent back.

Ask for your money back.

Then go to a good nursery.

Check size/quality/health/cost before you buy.

Most will offer a years guarantee.

What is this?

Sorry I am confused.

I am not sure what you mean.

1st link the leaves are not as open as yours.... it could be Syringa x persica... the photo bears no name.

The 2nd link you cannot even see any leaves?

3rd link is the same company I first used Perry hill... Syringa x persica. in my post at 14.38p.m

Plant ID please

I actually suggested this earlier but didn't think you had seen my post.


You can rule our  Syringa persica laciniata completely....

correctly called Syringa x laciniata

The leaf is very very different.

Laciniata means cut leaf.

Your lilac definitely does not have a cut leaf!

The internet is wonderful but not every picture on it is correctly labelled.

See this accurate pic of the leaves!....
