Plant 2 or more of a small tree!

2 looks like cornus.

1 is definitely Hypericum - my garden's overrun with it! I'd agree that 4 appears to be Alstroemeria, and 5 is Cotinus Coggygria (Smoke Bush). 6 is Aconitum (Monkshood). 8 is Solomon's Seal.

9 ? Heavenly bamboo , nandini xx

The hydgrangea is H petiolaris though its name may have changed, 

Another pic of 2 might help,I can't see if it's producing berries or seed heads.

also another pic  of the last one which may be a viburnum. 'Mariesii' or 'Lanarth' or one of that type. A close up of the leaves maybe,

That'll teach me to look before pressing submit, I meant plant 1 not 4

01/07/2014 at 14:54

I guessed Netherfield

01/07/2014 at 15:06

I agree with Nutcutlet, that last photo, nr.9 is some ssp. of Viburnum plicatum.

01/07/2014 at 16:16

Plicatum, that's the word that wouldn't come Flowerchild. Thank you

Does that just leave us with 2? another pic needed

That will be sawfly larvae and/or snails on the Solomon's Seal, AmandaBen

Oh wow thanks so much for all your replies - been out in the sun enjoying the garden !

Does that help - my ipad doesnt take the best photos .  

01/07/2014 at 16:45

If not I will get my camera out! 

01/07/2014 at 16:51

I can't get focussed on the flowers/seeds/berries AmandaBen

Ok, camera out

those flowers or whatever. The shape of the whole bush. The trunk/branches. some more leaves



01/07/2014 at 17:06

01/07/2014 at 17:07

No2 looks like a variegated dogwood.  Cornus florida variegata maybe??

I think you're right fidget, just wasn't sure what I was looking at but I think they are baby berries
