    I wondered about Euonymous too @madpenguin, when I could see it was two colours.
    They often have packs of mixed Euonymous.  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    Thanks for loking at these. I googled all suggestions and looks like these are
    1.Coprosma
    2.leucothoe
    3.Euonymus

    The other three which i havent posted were hebe, pieris  and choisya. Do you think i should plant these out in border or shall i pot these up?

    Hi,  hebe will be okay in the border, pieris needs acid soil so if you haven't got it, you will need to pot it up in eracious compost. Choisya will grow quite big in a few years so you will need plenty of space, although you could just dig it up when it gets too big.

    ...those Coprosma's are unlikely to survive the winter unless you live on the southern or western coasts, sheltered..   didn't survive my garden in East Anglia and I had a much larger plant although I know of one locally that's hanging in there...

    Thank you. Coprosma's may live here, iam in london suburb so a bit warmer here, but when i i  next time i will look for more hebes and avoid Coprosma's.
