  • Sorry posted before I could put in message. Can anyone please ID these and know how harsh I can be with cutting them back this time of year? 
    Thanks
  • Sorry but your pic is so misty it is hard to see any details.
    Please can you add clear close ups to show flowers and leaves.

    Could it be some sort of heather? Hard to tell the scale.
    Dordogne and Norfolk

    Yes I thought that too... some manky old Tree Heather..
  • Going by the dead leaves in the bottom left corner, it's a bit big for a heather, isn't it?  A photo in focus would be a great help though.

    I don't think they belong to the plant in question …  some whipcord Hebe's look similar but I don't think it's one of those..
  • I know they don't!  :D 

    I'm just using them for scale.

    lol.. oh sorry I misunderstood...   yes it's big for a usual type heather but I was thinking Tree Heath [Erica arborea]...
  • Ahh... I'm not familiar with that one.

  • Hi all sorry for pic quality but thanks for all the replies. I will get a better picture next week when I'm back there.

    Thanks
