Happy Sunday to Everyone ..

I am planning of moving this plant was told 'Hydrangea'...

When we moved into this house few years back, we have this overgrown plant that affected the evergreen plant next to it ... my neighbor calls it 'Hydrangea' which never bloomed ... but it has a stunning colourful foliage during the Autumn to mid-Winter, then die down and comes back again in Spring with lime green foliage during Summer. 

As always, thanks for all your insights ...Photos are found below .. 

Summer look below (of which i cut all the time because it affects the other plant:

Below is its Autumn to Mid-Winter colourful foliage ... I only allow this branch side to grow during the rest of Summer to enjoy its foliage in Autumn... until I have moved to another location, i will keep it low and controlled... :-(

    and it won't flower as you're cutting all the flowering stems off.....

    There's rather a lot of them too  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

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

    At least we can be certain that it's a variety that blooms on old wood. Leave it alone this year and next Spring you will be nearer an answer.
