Hello helpers,

I'd love to put names on these:
One is a curly shrub that isn't much to look at but I've learned to love for ground cover. The tree is growing in an awakward place so I'd like a name to find out how much more it will grow.

Thanks.

sive nailed it a sedum lovely pink flowers in august/september.
the other shrub looks like a pyracantha or firethorn bush and gets quite big but can be pruned hard. if it is thorny then it is pyracantha

No thorns visible.
Looks more like a goat willow to me.
(Salix caprea) 10m tall by 8m wide.
Can be cut back hard if needed.



You can read more about it here........ The native willows, Goat Willow (Salix caprea) (Saileach Dubh) , Grey Willow (Salix atrocinerea), Bay Willow (Salix pentandra) and Eared Willow (Salix aurita)

More on the Sedum (pic no. 1) here as well.............. Sedum

Fantastic help - the tree will certainly have to go. It does seem to be a willow - and is quite nice so maybe I'll look into keeping a bit for memory's sake.

Thanks again
