    1 is a pieris I think (does it turn pink in the spring?) and 3 is a gaultheria?

  • Hi - thanks: Moved house a week ago so i dont know how they evolve through the year.

    1 - Yes might well be a pieris japonica

    3 - hmm... looked at a few gaultheria pics, not sure

    thanks!

    I think 3 is a cotoneaster, maybe franchettii?

    Not sure about no 2, but agree about pieris.

  • Thanks again folks. 3 is a cotoneaster horizontalis I reckon. 

    Have googled deutzia images for 2 - can’t find anything that I’d say was a match - hmm  ?

    oops - weigela isn't evergreen. A Viburnum of some sort?
