Someone on another thread asked for something similar and I think it was Buzzy Lizzy suggested Trachelospermum jasminoides (star jasmine). Apparently it is scented and evergreen.

A Cautionary Tale .....

It's a red hazel, quercus and grows like the klappers, sprouts endlessly from the base as well as sprouting all the nuts I can't find.  Don't have room to let it do it's own thing, so have just let two trunks grow. At the last place where we lived there was a hazel at the end of the garden that was at least 15 meters high and just as wide, but garden was 1000 sq.m., this one is only 500 and the house is in the middle.

Hi RC, could it be this one? Plus some other low growing ones.

Lovely photos everyone!

I inherited the following which won't stop spreading without glyphosate: vinca major, lily of the valley and some kind of phlox. Also driving me nuts (no pun intended) are the hazel nut seedlings. Don't mind the aquilegias, nigella, forget-me-nots as they're easy to pull out if in the wrong place.

Should be possible provided you take enough soil with it and water it in well in new place.

Any ideas of this plants Id...

I dug up, split and replanted mine last autumn, now have two huge flowering plants. Bought a red one on an auction about 3 weeks ago, the lady dug it up and didn't get all the roots, but it has taken well. Just make sure you don't plant it any deeper than what it was before, they don't like to be deep.
