Hi, just taken on a voluntary gardener role, so working out what’s there. Any advice on this dark green plant please, it’s been planted in a raised bed with trellis behind it.
Thank you

Looks like a cotoneaster so spreader not climber!

Another suggestion from a follower on our social media is "Exochorda macrantha The Bride". Cheers, Nicola

It looks very much like my Spiraea cantoniensis. If that’s what it is, it is not a climber, but a shrub with an interesting weeping branch habit. Mine looks gorgeous in early spring with beautiful white flowers.

I think I would go with Exochorda too. So, a shrub rather than a climber. Watch out for its beautiful flowers next spring!

I have another Spiraea - japonica - which has similar leaves. Not saying it isn't Macrantha - only that it could still be a Spiraea.

looks like Berberidopsis corallina, a climber ( I think evergreen) with drooping fuchsia-pink flowers. prefers shelter and some shade with moist but drained soil
