Shrub ID - small white flowers

Good morning, I’ve had a look on Google to try and ID this but can’t find a match for the very small flowers and spiky leaves. It was in a pot for years and I planted in the ground last year, it seems to be doing well.

    Hi Flowers just so you know I am rubbish with flowers but wondered if this might be a confetti bush?  Looked up the latin name in case you want to check it out - coleonema

    It's lovely - whatever it is.
    In London. Keen but lazy.

    I agree - there's a page with photo on the wider GW site:

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
  • Thank you all, that looks like the one! Will prune after flowering this year to help shape and encourage growth for next year.

    Although it says on the page above that they are 'frost hardy', they are only borderline hardy in the UK, and won't survive long periods below freezing so best to fleece it through any weather like that during next winter. :)

  • @BobTheGardener thank you - I think the saving grace is that is planted by a wall. A fleece it is for next winter.
