    When I went to find the Latin name for vleesbes, Sarcococca is what I found as well.
    That Tetters knows her stuff innit.

    [​IMG]Logan, I'm so proud of you. :nerdy:

    Sjoerd, I worked in a nursery for years propagating shrubs innit, and sometimes (not always) I remember the names, usually after I've had to label a thousand or three with the correct name. As the memory fades I usually forget more than I remember ....wots my name ???:confused:
