shrub identity?





 Any ideas on the identity of this shrub? Sorry the close up of the leaf is a bit blurry. thanks

  • The leaves do look a bit like Weigela but the stems are all woody, no fleshy stems that I'd expect from summer's growth.

    I can't see that as a weigela. The growth pattern doesn't look right

    I wonder about one of those prunus with the purple leaves

    That's why I put the question mark.

    Could well be Prunus pisifera nigra.
