Hi - has anyone heard of a smallish shrub in flower now with lime green leaves & yellow & cerise pink flowers on the  same shrub? I keep driving past one but not suitable to stop & ask!

    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.
    If you live in Derbyshire, as I do.
  • Hi pansyface, thanks for responding. No i dont think its lantana, the flowers seem to be more tubular (trumpet like) a bit like some salvias. 

  • No. I can do the flower (lantana, as said), but not the leaf and I can do the leaf (abelia 'Francis Mason', escallonia 'Gold Brian', spiraea 'Golden Princess' et al ) but not the right flower!  Just when I think of something I dismiss it because it's too large , wrong leaf, wrong time of flower (although that can be misleading), wrong colour!  You'll have to stop and take a picture


  • Weigela middendorfiana? Anything like it? Had some in stock this year, one of my favourite shrubs.  It's out of season, but that's a minor detail. 


  • Hi - thanks to you all, i think Weigela is the plant, maybe there are different coloured ones. Will try to take pics.image

  • Sorry, but the pics online of it look white & pink & this plant is def yellow & pink - maybe bad picture colouring?!!                Thanx for your help
