New planting

Comment from Rob Hubbard

In forum: Suggestion box

This is the last area to be planted after landscaping and I think it could be a good feature facing south west. I would like to put shrubs there but apart from the usual I would like some ideas. I don't mind it not being evergreen. Pleas help anyone.

Identification of spring flowering shrub

Question from Liz Kendall

In forum: Identify a plant

I recently moved to a new house and I have been able to identify all plants apart from this one. It is evergreen and flowered from March - the attached photo was taken last week. The plant measures approximately 1m width by 0.7m in height. I would be very grateful for your suggestions. I will be redesigning the garden and want it to have a suitable home and care. Thank you.

Can anyone advise what this plant is please? It has appeared of it's own accord in amidst my front garden of primulas, foxgloves and tulips etc. Even my gardener wasn't sure what it is and suggested seeing if it bears fruit in a while!!
