What is this shrub with bright orange bell-shaped flowers; ouch! And spiky small, hardy leaves.




Its an upside down berberis, possibly darwinii or a variety of stenophylla

Ouch not good for my cricked neck, yes looks like berberis Darwinii, trim after flowering if you want it more compact.

and when someone said Australian, I believed them!!


Berberis then - yes they need to be more compact.
