    Could it be a form of Datura?

  • Thank you for the suggestion, I  will check it out, I have been trying to identify it for weeks.

    I've seen datura/brugmansia with blooms yellow at the top changing to red, but not the other way around - that doesn't mean that they don't exist.  But the leaves look a bit too thick and leathery/glossy to me - more like a camellia leaf image

  • Ive just checked and dont think it is a datura but thank you for responding.

    definately not a Brugmansia. the first name I thought of was Cuphea but it's not that.

    I've come across it before and can't remember the name

  • It started to flower about six weeks ago and is still producing buds. It is evergreen as there are no signs of the leaves dropping or changing colour. I must admit it is quite a mystery, I bought it at a flower show in Suffolk but lost the label in transit. When the buds appear they look like small acorns.

    Thank you for the responses so far

  • Thank you, it is still outside so I will make sure I put it in the conservatory

    Check for scale insects before you bring it indoors. If there are any, they will increase rapidly in a conservatory. Then put it out again for summer (basically treat it like a lemon tree.)
