Hoping someone can help , id like a couple of plants identified if possible the first up is the one with the lime green leaves and lilac flowers behind the sedum ☺
That plant could be Caryopteris Clandonensis or Incana.
Ive had a closer look at those and it doesnt really look like either , im not sure if its a japonica of some sort ?
What about Caryopteris Clandonensis 'Hint of gold'. or Caryopteris Incana 'Sunshine Blue'.
The sunshine blue looks similar ! It was here when we moved in and id like to know what to do with it to keep it looking nice and healthy ☺
I'm pretty sure they are Caryopteris shrubs and they are very garden worthy plants that if given the right conditions, they will thrive and need very little attention. They like sun, and the soil should be free draining and not heavy and too rich. No need to feed as they will grow well in free draining soil with little care. You can add a new layer of mulch every spring to keep the soil structure healthy. In late winter, just prune down the shrub to around 1 ft in height and they will grow back quite quickly from spring onwards. You should see flowers from July onwards right up to October sometimes.
So quite a hard prune in late winter ? Its about 3ft high at the moment ☺
One that has been around for a long time is.....Caryopteris clandonensis Worcester+Gold
You can cut off that amount in early spring. It will bounce back as the shrub behaves like a herbaceous plant. But, if the shrub is small and young, you could just prune back by half and only prune down to ground on stems that are very tired looking. They should rejuvenate very quickly. If you don't do this, you run the of risk of having leggy-floppy stems and less flowers next year.
