Hello, 

I have had this plant in my garden for years, it was here when I moved in. It does flower, the flowers only come at the side of it nearest the wall, this year the leaves are turning yellow. Can anyone identify it for me please?

    could be a camellia. 
  • It’s a very nice Camellia, it needs a feed with a feed for acid lovers that should green the leaves up, also it properly needs a good water as it’s growing so close to the wall,
    water first do not feed on dry soil.

    Great, Thankyou. Yes it’s very close to the wall, I will get it watered well and buy an acid lover feed ASAP.

    The flower buds are formed in late summer, so you have to keep it well watered at that time to ensure good flowering :)
