    Leaves on mystery shrub are opposite.
    Pittosporum are alternate..which rules it out.

    Really need to see sharp clear pics.

    I have trimmed pics and zoomed in but computer will not let me add them back to this thread for all to see.

    So now we know .....that it is very low growing, sprawling, woody, semi evergreen (maybe.) leaves opposite.
    It is showing signs of producing lovely new fresh green leaves.
    Sorry, so far I am not recognise this.
    Are we to assume this is growing in UK?

    I fear we need to wait for flowers...maybe that will help.
    Maybe someone else will instantly know it.

    Can you crush some of the new green leaves to see if they smell? Sometimes shrubby salvias can look like that at this time of year.

    Have you posted more photos somewhere else?
    To be honest @rockleigh, if @Silver surferis struggling, there's not much hope of anyone else getting it  ;)
    It's not ringing any bells for me, although at one point I thought it looked a bit clematis like in the stems. The foliage doesn't fit though.
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
