I'm creating an exotic bed and I've been on the hunt for plants for a while. On a recent trip to the gardens at Arboretum Kilquade I took a load of photos and then spotted something I liked when I got home.

Any idea what the shrub from the attached photo is called? Might it be Choysia Ternata Sundance? Not sure when I'll get back to Kilquade again to check, and they have no information online :(

I like that it has nice bright leaves and that they have a regular pattern. Interested to hear any suggestions for other shrubs that might work.

Fatsia Japonica and Rogersia have dramatic foliage and are very hardy. My Rogersias have great autumn colour right now.
Not sure what your shrub is, though.

Looks like cannabis to me. But sure what do I know?

Agree CTS

In full sun Choisya ternata sundance looks more golden.
Under shade it is less so.
It is an extremely slow shrub to get going.
