Hi, I'm new to this forum and to gardening in general, the problem is I have a plant I can't identify and wonder ifanyone can help (see pics attached). Thanks in advance.
It looks like pyracantha to me, does it have big long spines on the stems?
Spirea - probably 'Snowmound' Trev.
Hi, Potsandpansies and Fairygirl. It has no spines so I guess its Spirea, thanx for the quick replies
The close-up looks like a hawthorn to me, possibly Crataegus persimilis 'Prunifolia'. This would also have spines. But either of the other suggestions are good too. The photos won't enlarge for me, and I think they are upside down.
it's NOT spiraea snowmound. It might be exochorda or deutzia, but it's hard to tell with all the other foliage around it.
The photos enlarged for me - the leaves aren't hawthorn-ish - they look more pyracantha-ish to me - but if there are no spines
It looks like pyracantha, the soft growth tends not to be thorny.
Hostafan hi, did you see the close up pic? Thanx for the replies landgirl100 and Hostafan.
The flowers are very small about 8mm across. My wife's just been and looked at the plant more closely and I've been misleading you sorry it does have spines further down the plant.
and is it evergreen?
It looks more like a pyracantha than anything else to me
