When were the pics taken?
Where was this place?
It is a shame that you didn't take a pic of the label on the ground.
A camera is an excellent note pad/aide memoir.
Take the plant ...then the pic ...and it is better than pen and paper.

It might be a very sad looking Fabiana imbricata?

No silversurfer I did NOT forget to take a picture of the label. I simply had not noticed the reflection so no matter how I tried I could not make anything readable. I always take a picture of the label. Unluckily there are not always labels and those that are there are not necessarily correct.

Fortunately you were completely right! I found the same plant photographed a few years earlier: https://davisla3.files.wordpre... I tip my hat to you.

By the way, the picture was taken in October in Kew gardens.

I thought it might have been the exact same shrub at Kew as my 2nd link!

I never gave Fabiana much attention when not in bloom. Definitely an underutilized shrub.
