Can someone please tell me the proper name of the Bottle Brush plant, I think have one in the garden which has been completely in the shade until we got rid of the bush that overshadowed it, the leaves look familiar to those of the Bottle Brush Isaw in Australia, but I can't find any reference to it on this site or the RHS site.

Please can anyone help me identify 2 shrubs. Both have thin arching branches and are currently flowering. (1) slim pointed leaves, masses of tiny white bus which open to tiny bright yellow flowers, the leaves turn red in autumn/winter. (2) coper coloured leaves and branches, masses of tiny pink bell like flowers. I don't know how or when to prune these. Can I put a photo of them on this site

I didn't know    that some climbing roses revert to shrub roses if  pruned  hard particularly in the first 2 years, just read it on this site, it may explain the odd rose I have inherited in my new garden, all the roses have been badly pruned, but a lovely red one is really bad, its been cut through the main stem and is sending out long dangling branches which have roses on them but hand on the ground, it was in a small pot and I moved it into the ground last Autumn
