Moved into a house and redoing the garden, just wanted to know if anyone can help identify these 2 bushes, so I can decide to keep them or not.

Thanks

    The first looks a little like an azalea and the second may be a Chaenomeles (but I can't see any spines, so may be something else.)  Both look like they are about to burst into flower, so best wait until they do before doing anything and you'll get definite IDs if you do. :)

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
  • first one is an azalea and the second looks like a dwarf flowering cherry called
    Kojo no mai, you will soon find out as both shrubs should soon be flowering.

    I also think the second one is Prunus Kojo no mai as I have just bought one.

    Thanks for that I’ll have a google at those and see what to expect in the next few months
  • Agree .....a dwarf evergreen Rhododendron...commonly called Azalea.
    Probably Prunus incisa Kojo no mai...it will grow fairly large ... pale pink flowers in spring. Fab autumn colour owers in

    Thanks so much I’ll post a pic once they flower. 

    I had a Orange azalea before but it lost its leaves in the winter didn’t realise you could get an evergreen.

    Also looking to find out what these are I had them in my previous house.

    photo is not great but 2 types of plants in there.

    The main one you can see would turn a deep red end by oct/nov, cut back in the winter and grow again. There would have strong stems and start to grow around April.

    The other you can just see in the photo would flower like a thistle almost, would cut back when looking poor after flowering and the would grow again quickly
