Can anyone please tell me what this is. It was about 6ft tall and I chopped it back to 1ft about 18 months ago and it's sprouting again.

    Thank you Fan. Would a "horizontalis" be 6ft tall?

    Could well be, if trained up against a fence.

    I was wondering why you chopped it down. It may not be the prettiest of shrubs, but it is evergreen. The bees love its tiny flowers and the birds like the berries in winter.

    It was growing through a very mature bamboo that offers us screening from neighbours and that we like a lot. The wife being oriental the bamboo won.
