Any suggestions?

Sorry, Salt. Don't think so. There are no thorns and the leaves are almost completely circular and dished.

Wow!!! 2 of the top 4 or 5 genii on this site stumped?

I don't think Coprosma. I agree similar type of growth, but just doesn't seem to match any other criteria I see on the web. This one, apart from anything else, is not far short of 3m tall

Back to my reference books for futher inspiration - I hope

No genus here! I can't keep Lunaria and Hesperis straight.

Hi Fof,

Try Everistia vacciniifolia.

Thanks, Ted

I suspected you would know this one, as it has such distinctive foliage and you seem to be the Ozzie Guru here. :-))
