And Finally, Unidentified shrub 3

I found this advice:

Common problems

Pittosporum tenuifolium is susceptible to leaf spot and powdery mildew infections.

It may also suffer from infestations of pittosporum sucker, aphids or cushion scale. If grown indoors the two-spotted spider mite can be a problem.

Very cold temperatures and frost can damage, or even kill, the plant.


Yours looks to be very much alive but perhaps in need of a little TLC

This one's a bit tricky isn't it?

I initially thought of Eleagnus except the flower is wrong, if the flower belongs to it


It could be Pittosporum


Today I feel so happy....
