    The other day I went for a walk with my daughter and grandson (we worked out our walk was at least 8 miles, and he still ran up the hill to her house!), we went past Exeter University and through their gardens. As we left the gardens we saw a really unusual bush.

    It's quite tall (at least 10 feet) and has thick spikey leaves. It was almost cacti like. The leaves were in sections, quite angular and each section was 180 degrees to the next - it almost looked artificial!

    I didn't even think of taking a photo! Sad

    Does anyone have any ideas as to what it was, or even where I can look to find out!?

    Sounds a bit like Mahonia. If left to it's own devices it will grow quite tall.
    try wikipedia or plant finder.

    Wow, that is an unusual plant. Definately looks like a succulent. ( nothing like a mahonia though.)
