Hello all. This plant was reduced to a quid, because it had no label. Its about 10 inch high, and the stems are quite sturdy (but not woody). It was with outdoor shrubs, so I'm assuming this is also a shrub. Leaves are about 2" long, there's no sign of any flowers. Any ideas???

My first thought is that it might be some kind of Choisya - one of the Mexican varieties. But It does look a bit ravaged and a bit thirsty!

Thank you. I've compared my plant to choisyas on this website - and I think you're right (plus, it's the sort of shrub Tesco would sell!). It probably looked bedraggled because it's spent a weekend inside my house. It's outside now - a bit of northern air and rainfall will soon perk it up (that is my philosophy for most plants to be honest).

Carol is right, looks an awful lot like Choisya' Aztec pearl" nice medium size shrub with some scent, takes shade or sun.
