Hi,

This plant came in a pot with something I ordered last year. I kept it alive and put it in my garden this spring. It has grown to about 2 ft. tall and tends to weep or fall over. No blooms yet. The stems are not exactly round. Can you help with identification?

Is it woody? It looks like a forsythia to me.

Yes, it is woody. The leaves are glossy but not real thick. I didn't know if I should leave it outside or dig and bring in. Guess I'm not out anything either way.
Thanks.

Looks a lot like Fushia or Bouganvilla to me. If so, neither is hardy except in the deep South.

Sorry, I have had fushia and Bouganvilla and I know it isn't either of those. Thanks for trying.
Dinu...will check on the one you mentioned. Hope I find out, but know it must be tropical just from where I had ordered from.
