Hi, I have been given a plant and the only information with it was "it came from Carmarthen"
It looks quite exotic so I am wondering if it came from the Botanical Gardens.
Can anyone help me to identify it and to establish its needs?
Thanks in anticipation - Alan (Vale of Glamorgan)

Hi Rori, have tried uploading Tiff and jpeg but all that I see is a line of code. Any suggestions?
Cheers - Alan

A line of code is what you will see in the regular text window. Look at 'Preview' to see what it will look like once posted.

Reminds me of Sorbaria sorbifolia - but except for image #2, those pictures are so tiny as to not impart much information.

Can you post higher resolution images?
