Wonderful - I had a funny idea that it might be a pittosporum but did not know where to start. I have tentatively identified it as Pittosporum tenuifolium 'Variegatum'. On this website at: https://www.shootgardening.co.uk/plant/pittosporum-tenuifolium-variegatum
Thank you to everyone who answered.

I won't claim to be too clever and know this one but I found the answer in another forum post so I will let you know it is Pittosporum tenuifolium 'Variegatum'.
The post was on 27th April Fragrant shrub against west facing wall

Hi Tim, some great suggestions from our social media:

"Flower looks like a Pittosporum but leaf not quite ok but could be new leaf."
"Pittosporum"
"Variegated pittosporum x"
"The leaves look like a variegated Weigela"

Hope that helps?

Thanks Nicola

Yes to Fatsia japonica (not a fig).
The other looks more like a Pittosporum to me than a Spiraea - although there are Spiraea that colour. if the leaves are tough and glossy it isn't Spiraea.

Re: Pittosporum illicoides or hebe tairawhiti or something completely different?

Hi Kate, a suggestion for you from our social media followers

"I think it is Hebe stenophylla. If so, can be pruned to shape or hard back in April (over 2 years)."

Pittosporum illicoides or hebe tairawhiti or something completely different?

Question from Kate

In forum: Identify a plant

Extensive googling has led me to these two plants but I may be way off the mark. What is this? 1.5m tall, woody stems that partly look dead and snap off easily despite having new growth coming from them

Hi It's Pittosporum tenuifolium. Most people grow it as a large shrub, but given enough time it forms a really great evergreen tree!

Sorry to hear it got damaged. Might be worth reshaping the whole plant and letting it regrow as a whole. Prune after the worst of the frosts have passed, but not too late into the spring or you'll miss that first bit of regrowth!

Hope that helps.

It is nice to get some descriptions, how tall etc. The first picture is not very clear, could be a conifer or santolina, the 2nd is a hebe, the 3rd could be pittosporum.

I agree with Nicola that the pictures are very unclear, but the first is almost certainly a Hebe, the second could be a pittosporum or cornus and the third looks like Thuja (or some other similar conifer.

The variegated plant looks like a Pittosporum to me, but I am not an expert on varieties.

The other blue flower is a variety of Campanula - but again, there are many varieties. (There's some bindweed in amongst it too!)

the first picture looks like daphne odora marginata, the second might be the variegated pittosporum.

I think the pale leaved one is a Pittosporum - but not expert enough to identify variety. The other has me beaten.

Re: Advice

Message from Carol

In forum: Identify a plant

Are you in a place that doesn't get severely cold winter weather - there's a hardy Gardenia (Kleim's hardy) and a delightful plant called Pittosporum tobira (there seems to be a variety called 'nanum' and a variegated one!). I've never seen a dwarf Choisiya, and Ceanothus has only a light scent.
Do you want the scent in summer?
Maybe Sarcococca humilis (sweet box) might do if you want scent earlier in the year.

Thank you for your suggestions Anna, Maggie and Andrew
I think the suggestion of the pittosporum tenuifolium is probably correct - mystery solved!

My first guess would be a holly, its difficult to see the buds,if you had a picture of them, it would help to narrow it down, also underside of leaf and close up of leaf surface. Second guess would be a Pittosporum, P. tenuifolium 'Gold Star' looks very similar though leaf is possibly smaller.

Thank you Tania. That looks exactly right! A pittosporum tenuifolium it is. It is obviously happy where it is as it has reached a height of 5 metres. Is it O.K. to top it out as we don't want it to get any taller? Many thanks
