    You might want to move it later, once its established as its a medium/large shrub. I have one, I love it.

    Thank you all, you have confirmed my suspicions. I have looked in several books and on websites, coming up with the same answer and many common names.

    What a fantastic forum and a wealth of knowledge.

    Many thanks again.
