    If you'r on a PC start from the green tree in the tool bar. If you're on something fancy and modern someone else will have to adviseimage

    That plant is some sort of Hebe. It likes sun, shelter and not too much moisture.

    How can you lie there and think of England
    When you don't even know who's in the team

  • Yes, its a hebe

  • As the flowering and leaves have colour at the top how can I promote growth at the bottom should I cut it right back 

  • In my experience hebes absolutely hate being cut hard back and usually turn up their toes and die if you try that.

    I suggest planting other lower plants around it that will disguise it's 'bare legs' image
