Mrs Garden ...enjoy your meal.  I'm off too soon.  Maybe I shouldn't have eaten a whole pack coconut snowballs though    I am a bit gweedy  But once a box is open they go off very, very quickly .  ( besides there are others who might want them)

Any Ideas Please...

Nut, I am wrong and you are right. Francis mason does have touches of yellow in the foliage as do many varieties of abelia.  There are some green varieties though...Edward Goucher, from checking them out.  The flowers look more attractive on the plain green varieties but i think they are bigger shrubs.

Any Ideas Please...

Nut, yes seceral dark green varieties.  Forgive me, not up to date but grandiflora varieties ring a bell.  Francis mason ??  Have to check it out now.

Friend grows one I planted 15 years ago.  And a neighbour too.  Easy on the eye right now.  You no likee the variegated ones nut?  In sunshine comfettii is lovely just for the foliage and right now it's white flowers are like little gems.

The dark green varieties have pink flowers with touches of red.  I'll check out Francis mason and comment shortly.......

Fidget, try the perennial plants catalogues.    Don't like to lose plants but often when they do it's an opportunity to try something new. .

Seeds are just not my strength nut.  I have no patience, alas  I get satisfaction from cuttings but I guess from seed it's even better.

Hey carmic, yes post other pictures.  One way or another here you will find out what you have.
