They certainly are @andromeda. I was thinking about moving the shrub as it had not flowered but it was just getting used to a new home 😉

This is the first real flowering after 3 years so the shrub has been taking time to settle in. Full of buds so a bloom this year

Do you find this grows really slowly Steve???

@sieveheadsarah the shrub has spread wider than higher in the last 3 years but I would not say it has been fast growing. Probably about 10cm per year.

Mine looks like it's grown about 2cm a year, it flowers well and that's about it, maybe I'll move it?

Sarah I have mine against a south facing wall in well drained soil. The RHS website provides good advice and the encyclopaedia info on GardenTags is also useful.
