Got this from a garden center 2 years ago and it died in the frost, twice, but its actually still a little bit alit, you can just about make out a bit of a new shoot coming out of its dead mass.
Must be a tropical shrub.
Keep forgetting to take a photo of this, but you can see this one poking out in the latest photo as its quite tall now.
I cut back all the dead wood and weeds and I think that this is the same shrub as I have in the front yard. I still dont know its name though.
Not sure how I feel about these plants that I cant name and only seem to be lingering on.
