Can anyone please tell me what this is? And pruning advise would be more than welcome, iv had a go at it the last few years but I'm sure I'm doing it wrong, or wrong time, thanks james




Looks like Abelia grandiflora from the picture.

It’s difficult to tell but could it be potentilla?, if it were potentilla then you can prune these quite hard and would do this early spring.

I have checked with photos after your answer and it is indeed a potentella Thank you very much I shall follow your advise, I have a few more plants in my garden that I need advise on so I shall post photos soon and maybe you good people can help me out. I haven't used this site before so I apologise as my posting seems as bad as my knowledge of plants, and pruning
