Can anyone help identify this beautiful tree in my garden? It's lovely little purple flowers on it for the past month. After extensive Googling I've admitted defeat!
I don't think it's a tree, maybe climbing Hydrangea but I'm hope hopeless at ID's
That is exactly what it is, thanks! It must be climbing up something then as it looks 'tree shaped' - I will have a better nose once it's stopped tipping it down!
Its a Hydrangea, some can make small trees and certainly shrubs depending on the species. This looks like Hydrangea aspera and if it is then it can grow to 4-5m.
