probably C. persicum
i think it's definitely photinia
what about P. davidiana?
You're more likely to be right Tetley. My experience is only of killing one P davidiana.
Thanks for responding Liri, nutcutlet and Tetley - I think nutcutlet's right - I now think it's definitely a photinia....thanks very much and happy new year to all!
Glad others knew, WP. Happy new year to you too!
Very heavy frost last night, but still have a very colourful display of pelargoniums growing both sides of my front porch - if it stays mild, could they possibly last through the winter? I keep thinking I should put them in the greenhouse with all my other pelargoniums, which have been inside for a few months now, but they are so bright by the front door that I thought they should take their chance outside.
My pelargoniums stayed out over winter a couple of years ago. We had a couple of frosts but nothing severe and they were reasonably protected from strong wind and driving rain.
They were a bit leggy by March but I cut them hard back, gave them a feed and they were lovely big plants by the summer
Well here's mine....
calendulas, cyclamen, erysimum, polyanthus, viburnum- bodnantse & burkwoodii, Welsh poppies, pansies/violas, both, wallflowers, hellebore Niger & orientalis, heucheras, bergenias.
spotted up lane yesterday...brunnera plus some type of cow parsley!! J.

Yellow flower (can't remember the name and I'm sure I've asked more than once)
