Shrub ID please.
« on: June 29, 2018, 12:47 »
Me again!
Can anyone put a name to this plant.
Itís quite small at the moment, about 30 cm across, in a pot. Itís evergreen and the leaves turn red at some point - maybe autumn?
It was removed from a hanging basket so no label.

Any ideas appreciated, thanks

Elaine

Might it be a Lornicera.  Are the leaves very small.  Mrs Bouquet

The leaves are quite small, but a little bigger than lonicera and they are shiny too. Should have mentioned that, sorry.

Are there thorns? Could be a Berberis perhaps

It looks similar to a box.

I missed this one, but having just looked at the picture, it looks like Berberis thunbergii Aurea to me  :)
