I pruned it severely, composted & mulched it, then watered it well. It has come back beautifully, I didn't expect it to flower, but it has managed to push through a few, although I do wonder if it should be covered in blooms. Any way I don't know what it is so will need to do some research to discover its requirements.
Gorgeous little lantern flowers, but unfortunately they hang down so are hard to view.
The shrub is about 1.5m high at the moment, but was about 2m when I cut it back, could be a tree for all I know!
This picture shows how the flowers hang down
My blood lily leaves a getting ginormous! I did photograph the flower, but with my other phone, that phone is mine no longer, so will have to wait til next year for their weird blooms again.
