    I think the first one is probably Cotoneaster Franchetii. It's quite tough and easy care. I expect a bird dropped a berry and it grew.

    Lantana is a member of the Verbena family and is not hardy in winter, although it is perennial. You pot it up and put it somewhere frost free or you take cuttings and overwinter them indoors. They like warm sunny places and can take a bit of drought. They grow well in places like the South of France and Corsica.

    thanks for that,   Do I cut back the cotoneaster for winter as it is getting very long branches.   How do I get cuttings from the Lantana as it is too big to pot it up.

    I think you will get more answers if you start new threads with the relevant titles. People won't look at this because it's an old thread about roses.

    But as cotoneaster is used for hedging it can be clipped how you want it. Except the birds like to eat the berries when the weather gets colder.
