Kalmia Latifolia is the 'proper' name for the Calico Bush.If pruning is needed to keep it in shape, it should be done immediately after flowering so that you don't lose any flowers the following year. As your plant is flowering so well, you're obviously pruning at the right time.

Thanks Wally,  it's quite an attractive shrub and I think that is more by luck than my judgement but I will get the hedge cutters out after flowering and give it a short back and sides ready for next year

We have got a yucca flowering for the first time. I remember seeing Hugo's on here and being amazed by it.

It's well worth waiting for Hollins that's a beautiful flower but watch those leaves, they are deadly
