No I can't, when I click on the link it goes straight to the Facebook login page. I have however, got the other half to log in to her account and viewed it there!

My verdict......... I haven't got a clue what it is! It looks familiar though! icon_scratch

It looks like a sycamore crossed with a nettle to me. Must look up the hibiscus mentioned.

Ah mine hasnt flowered Grub, always comes back each Spring though.
Still cant remember what mines called but it will come back one day.
From memory its a tropical swamp Hibiscus but hard as nails, it needs more heat than I can give it to flower but its good for the foliage.

edit; Hibiscus coccinea

Ricinus Communis? Quite a commonly seen plant in Parks and on bigger Roundabouts.
