I bought it in dobbies in spring and have forgotten the name. It produces little white flowers in spring and has jagged leaves, which are green at the moment.

    Hello again Poppie. I think that your shrub MAY be a little cherry (prunus).

    I was thinking that to! Do you think any particular variety? Someone said amelanchier lamarckii when I asked but wasn’t sure?

    The flowers and leaves do not look like Amelanchier - I have one in my garden. It looks like Prunus shirotae or Prunus nipponica 'Brilliant'.

    I think I recognise the name brilliant! I think that’s it!
