Hi everyone,

This plant belongs to a friend and I was wondering firstly if it is a brom, and secondly what anyone can tell me about its identity.

Thanks in advance

All the best, Nev

Hi everyone - Thanks for the feedback. Melanie, sorry this is the only pic I have, so I guess I'll have to wait and get my friend to take some more pic's when it flowers.

Thanks again, all the best, Nev.
