    Difficult to see but I think it's a high hedge of Clerodendrum trichotomum, which flowers in September...

    Thank you! but sorry, I should have been clearer - the ones in the foreground - no flowers, very upright growth?

    Thank you for adding the GW  program as a link..most helpful.
    I believe these 2 upright shrubs are the rather rarely grown  Cornus sanguinea compressa. See my pics  3 below.
    Behind Carol were the Clerodendrum trichotomum.
