What is this plant please

It came in the garden of our new house but I can't decide what it is. Any views? Many thanks

    Yes - as nut says. You can prune and shape it if you want, or just remove stems/branches where you don't want them.
    It'll be inclined to layer itself too, and therefore spread, so be aware of that if you don't want it to do so. Easy to maintain, prune/tidy whenever you want, and provides a very good backdrop for other plants, and shelter for birds etc.  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
  • Brilliant many thanks both, I have loads of it probably 30/40 medium sized plants. But now I know what it is I can make much better use if it and doing a bit of research I can't wait to tame it a bit 😊😊😊😊.
