I'm a complete novice but saw this plant at a country house here in the UK and liked it. If I could find what it is I'd get some to add variety to a long stretch of laurel hedge outside my house.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Andrew

Dear Andrew, I think the image file size may have been too large. Can you resize the image and try again? If not we can resize it for you. Please send us the image to shoot@shootgardening.co.uk and entitle your email as 'image resize'. Thanks Nicola

Hard to tell but possibly a type of Skimmia or Daphne?

Could be a skimmia from its growth form and it being evergreen, a close up will make it a sure identity or it could be a euonymous.

Its a skimmia that has chlorosis because the soil is too alkaline for it. A dose of sequestered iron would sort it out. If your soil is neutral or acidic you could grow it and it would be very attractive with laurel.
I don't know if I'm allowed to say this (Nicola??) but we at Blooming Marvellous Plants will be selling them on the shoot marketplace in the spring (probably from March).
