:lol: :lol: Luzy. I'd say it looks like Salvia Victoria White as I have similar bush.

Pam, the close up pic isn't too clear. Is it possible to get more shoots please? Thanks.

Yani, that's possibly because I expanded the original pic by an exra 50 per cent.

Hey Yani, I thought it was a euphorbia off in the distance! :lol: Let's call it S. Mickey Mouse Accent.
