|I believe this might be a Himalayan plant ...is anyone able to put a name to it please?.|

|Hi Zen1! |
Not sure where you are located...that always helps with identification.
This looks to me like Love Lies Bleeding (amaranthus caudatus) at first glance.
Old gardeners never die. They are just pruned and repotted.

|Leycesteria formosa, maybe 'Golden Lanterns'|

|Himalayan Honeysuckle (Leycesteria formosa)|
Looks like it's probably one of the golden-leaved forms.

|Sorry foraygardengirl ...I'm in Scotland .UK....yes I can see why you think it could be Amaranthus caudatus because of the leaves.....but the flowers look quite different..??..|
The whole plant is about 5ft high and maybe 4 ft across.
