I had to take it from a distance (!) but what is it?! It's a stunning colour and made up what looks like tiny little flowers.

littlem133 Tue 21-Jun-16 18:44:44

Pink viburnum?

I downloaded an awesome app called pl@ntnet today.

You load the photo and it tells you what it is within seconds (been at the local garden centre testing it out all afternoon, it's really cool)

Not sure what that^ is but if you get the app it should identify it.

I have no affiliation with pl@ntnet, I promise

can you get a close up of a few flowers and/or a leaf?

littlem133 Tue 21-Jun-16 19:17:10

Thanks for the app info. I'll download it now.

I think I need to get a close up photo tomorrow. It's a plant on the school run and I felt a bit daft today taking a picture of it!!

Some kind of heather? but there are so many varieties would be difficult to say which! It's lovely, love the colour

SilverBirchWithout Tue 21-Jun-16 20:21:16

Is it prickly? If so it could possibly be a variety of Berberis

Hiahia Tue 21-Jun-16 20:43:12

I reckon it might be Manuka/New Zealand Tea Tree?

NoraBarlow111 Tue 21-Jun-16 21:58:57

Pretty sure it's a weigela

littlem133 Tue 21-Jun-16 22:37:00

I think you're right Nora!! Thanks everyone. It's beautiful!!

littlem133 Wed 22-Jun-16 09:04:23

A close up!

Not sure that IS a weigela, on closer view, unless it's some specially ornamental type with unusually small and even leaves too.

Hiahia Wed 22-Jun-16 09:37:04

I'm pretty sure it's Manuka.

Footle Wed 22-Jun-16 09:38:20

Nora, and you're an aquilegia !

NanTheWiser Wed 22-Jun-16 12:04:46

Hiahia has it - it's Leptospermum scoparium, quite possibly this variety www.dobbies.com/products/plants/leptospermum/leptospermum-scoparium-winter-cheer "Winter cheer".

littlem133 Wed 22-Jun-16 18:57:38

Hiahia and nan you're amazing. Thank you! And isn't that plant stunning!! Write ups say they're a little delicate though which might count me out but I have to give it a go!! I have an all white garden though and this is quite clearly not white!!

littlem133 Wed 22-Jun-16 18:59:03

Oh wow. There is a white variety-snow white. Woohoo!!

NanTheWiser Wed 22-Jun-16 20:56:50

Unfortunately, they're not very hardy, unless you have a really sheltered position and not in a frost pocket.

littlem133 Wed 22-Jun-16 21:20:53

Dog. I might have a sheltered position. In Worcestershire, in the corner of the garden under a atlas cedar, facing south east? Or against our front garden wall facing west.
