Are these the same pics as last week.?
Can we have a close up of the leaves?
Those leaves should have developed a bit more by now, give us more of a chance
looks like some form of Sambucus. ( elder) but I'd not risk my reputation on it.
Have we thought about the Wayfaring Tree - viburnum lantana?
I think it could any number of things. The leaves or a good close up of the emerging leaves would help
Ok cool I will take a close up of them this Wednesday when I go back, its 100% not a buddleja or sambucas
Oh actually I have a picture of something completely separate with the leave, if I post it on here can any of you perhaps identify it
I have a shrub which lookds quite similar which is only just leafing out. It's a callicarpa bodinieri var. giraldii - fairly unusual, I think it's common name is Beauty bush but I could be wrong.The stems look much like yours at the moment. Supposed to have tiny bright purple berries late summer that birds like. Mine were so tiny, you could hardly see them but I have been told that two bushes are better for berrying. About 6- 10 ft high and deciduous. Fully hardy and does best in full sun.
What do others think?
