Grows in full sun in a friend's garden in Burton-on-Trent, in flower in June (probably May too) and was an absolute magnet for sparrows.    Evergreen with glossy serrated leaves.

Many thanks in advance!

    Thanks for the welcome! Spot on with the ID - it absolutely looks like E. macrantha too.  Off to the (online) shops!
