Ooo, thanks Dove.     Seeing a bunch of folk today who are quite academic so you can be sure I will inform them of the wild haggis here in Cornwall. I needed to find something to impress them and I think this is just the ticket.  

Best way to i.d this plant?

Welcome to the forum Luke.

Well, well you learn something new every day.  Never knew haggis were actually animals and now I've seen just what they look like I can boast to all amd sundry.  Think I will impress everyone today and say those clever people on the forum have educated me.  

Wet, wet and more wet.  Very mild, almost warm, but it would be nice to have a dry period of cold sunny winter days

Hmmmmm....but pyracantha is so VICIOUS.  Those sharp long barbs.  Got rid of mine.  One of those near your eyes...a child's bad news.  You can have prickly but pyracantha is dangerous

I also would grow a berberis there....Darwinii.  Evergreen, easily pruned, spikey, and lovely orange flowers in spring.  A bonus of blue berries too.  A much better plant there than mahonia

I'm sure you will grow all those very well Tracey

I would never grow bamboo flowersforbees.  Ok there are some supposedly non invasive types but all are a big NO for me.  

How about growing miscanthus as a screen?
