    IMG_3308.JPG Does anyone recognise this shrub? I spotted it whilst out walking this evening, growing at the edge of a garden and sticking though into a park area (only reason I felt ok taking a bit from the park side). It was about four feet tall, and fairly bushy. I'm looking to buy some evergreen flowering shrubs this year, and this looked very attractive.
