I have an unidentified shrub/tree - can anyone help?  It has brilliant yellow autumn colour, and at this time of year inconsequential tiny white flowers that the bees love.  Probably more a small tree than a shrub

    Is it a Wayfaring Tree - Viburnum lantana? 

    Are the leaves downy underneath?

    No, not wayfaring tree, I know those well.

    and this one is very familiar and I'm sure it will come to me

    total guess. Styrax japonica?

  • could it be Cotoneaster Frigidus ?

    sorry not sure of spelling.

    no, it's not any of the cotoneasters

    It it's decidous might it be a sophora?  Bet it isn't image

    Its definitely deciduous - will google sophora

    What sort of berries does it produce?


  • chickychicky SurreyPosts: 10,300

    No - the first picture i posted shows the flowers in their full glory ( i said they were inconspicuous!!).

    it could well be something that has seeded there rather than been planted.
