  • I am in the same opinion as Hexagon we have got some and they self seed all over the garden,the same goes for the herb red vain sorrel I started with one 2 years ago and have about 20 dotted about the garden.

    Looks more like Sarcococca to me.

    Jacobs Ladder, they have a lovely long blooming time if you dead head they soon bloom again, they come in different shades of blue and white.
